Brown Sugar Candied Bacon

Brown Sugar Candied Bacon

8 ounces sliced bacon 
1/2 -3/4 packed cup brown sugar
Don't preheat your oven.

Line a large baking sheet with tin foil.
Stick a rack on top. Set aside.

Scoop brown sugar into a long shallow baking dish (long enough to accommodate the bacon). Pat strips of bacon dry with paper towels, then dredge bacon in brown sugar. Transfer sugary bacon strips onto rack nestled over your lined baking sheet. Pop bacon into the cold oven. Turn the heat to 350 degrees.

Flip bacon strips after 15 minutes in the oven. At this point, you'll want to check on the bacon every couple of minutes - it can quickly go from cooked to burned. I've found that my thin-cut bacon is done after 20-22 minutes. Baking time will vary depending on the thickness of your bacon - a thicker bacon should take an extra 5 minutes. When it's done, you want the bacon to be glistening with the sugar glaze. Let it cool on a rack and it will crisp up.
