  1. Candied bacon is the best. Even when I'm just pan-frying turkey bacon I throw a little brown sugar on the slices. Makes all the difference!

  2. Candied bacon is like crack! Great now I'm going to obsess over it until I go and buy some bacon & make it myself 🙂 That's not a bad thing, either!

  3. Hey chickie, I was wondering if you could make me exactly two slices of this and then I'll come pick it up? I don't dare make it for myself, but I am sorely tempted! The bacon in the fridge is calling to me.

  4. I have tried making this but my sugar all burns off. Help what am I doing wrong. Going to try again. Have to say your recipes are the best. Can't wait for my cook book. Thank-You.
