Glazed Bacon

Posted in Breakfast at 7:22 pm by Sheila OConnell

Because the only thing better than bacon… is sugar-coated bacon. The recipe calls for thick-sliced, meaty bacon (double-smoked, if possible) and brown sugar. In the oven, the bacon loses almost all its fat and tuns crunchy and sweet.

Ingredients:

Bacon

1 tbsp brown sugar per bacon strip, or to taste (when I made the recipe, this seemed like a lot of sugar – 2 tsp per slice may suffice)

Preheat the oven to 350. Lay the bacon out on a pan and bake for 10 min. Pour off the fat. (This is a little unwieldy – it may be easier if you cook the bacon on a rack in the pan and just lift out the rack to drain the grease.) Sprinkle brown sugar over each strip and return to the oven for 8 min. Turn bacon over and bake for 2-3 min longer. Watch carefully – the bacon can easily overbrown and burn. Remove from pan and allow to cool slightly. Feel unhealthy all day but also very, very satisfied.
