Candied Bacon

Ewwww sweet bacon right?  WRONG! This is sooooooooooooo delectable you will not even believe it. You must and I mean must try this asap. 

Candied Bacon

12 slices bacon, thicker cut
Cracked black pepper
1/3 cup brown sugar
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

Put bacon slices in a bowl, season them with pepper and toss with the brown sugar. Cover a baking sheet with parchment or no-stick foil and arrange the bacon in a single layer on top. Sprinkle any sugar left in the bowl over the bacon. Place the pan in the center of the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Check the bacon often!…. If it is not golden brown and fairly crispy, cook it for up to 10 to 15 minutes longer. Check it again and again.  Seriously....Keep in mind that when you remove the bacon to your plates, the bacon will "crisp" up a little more. Be patient but watch it carefully..it goes from done to burntVERY quickly.

So smoky and sweet and salty....what is not to love?
