Brown Sugar Natural Bacon

Candied Bacon

It's the breakfast recipe staple that you just might not be able to resist using at … dare we say it? … other meals, too!

Serves 5 | Total Time: Less Than 30 Mins




Pecan Sugared Bacon:
Add 1/3 cup finely chopped pecans to sugar mixture.

Sugar and Spice Bacon:
Add ¾ teaspoon cinnamon and ¼ teaspoon ground mustard powder to sugar; omit maple syrup.

NOTE: For smaller pieces, cut bacon slices in half crosswise before proceeding with the recipe. If you prefer a less sweet bacon, use only 1/3 cup of sugar.

  1. Preheat oven to 400º.
  2. Mix brown sugar and maple syrup in a small bowl; set aside
  3. Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil
  4. Place bacon in a single layer on sheet pan
  5. Press sugar mixture onto bacon (top surface only)
  6. Bake 12-14 minutes until brown and crisp, checking bacon frequently for doneness
  7. Place a sheet of foil under a wire cooling rack to catch drips; transfer bacon from sheet pan to wire rack to cool

After serving, store in refrigerator. Place in oven for easy warm-up of leftovers (in the rare event that there are any).
