Brown Sugar Bacon

Brown Sugar Bacon

I saw Martha Stewart make this on her show when I was first married, and have made variations on her method over and over again through the years. Just a little sprinkle of brown sugar, turbinado sugar, or even a drizzle of pure maple syrup takes the flavor of the bacon over the top. In fact, until I tried it this way, I was never even a fan of bacon, but now I love it—but I suppose anything turned into some sort of candy is always a winner with me.

This other plus of this recipe is the fact that you roast this, and if you bake it on parchment paper or an aluminum foil lined baking sheet, the cleanup is fairly easy, and you can make a lot more all at once.

Brown Sugar Bacon

1 package all natural bacon
1/4 cup brown sugar, turbinado sugar, or pure maple syrup

Preheat oven to 375. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil and a wire rack (optional). Place bacon strips close to each other and sprinkle with whatever sugar (or syrup) you are using. Bake on the middle rack of the over for 15-18 minutes, or until it reaches the desired crispness. Cool on a cooling rack set over paper towels.

    I love bacon this way! Another Martha Stewart recipe is to sprinkle a little cayenne in some good honey, and warm it in a saucepan. Brush this onto bacon, and roast it the same way. Sweet, with a hint of heat.
