Candied Bacon — June 14, 2015

Candied Bacon

I saw something about candied bacon once and have been curious ever since.  Today I finally gave it a try! It was very simple and the results were amazing.  The saltiness of the bacon remained while the sweetness of the brown sugar added another layer of flavor.

Here are the steps:

First, preheat your oven to 400°F.  Line a baking sheet with tinfoil (this will make cleanup much easier). Lay the bacon strips on your foil-lined baking sheet. Make sure they aren’t touching. I fit about ten strips of bacon on mine.

Next, sprinkle each piece with a bit of brown sugar. I filled a small dish with some brown sugar and just used my fingers to sprinkle it over the bacon.

Now you can place your bacon into the oven.  I cooked my for 21 minutes, but I had fairly thick slices. Keep an eye on your bacon. I would start checking it periodically around 15 minutes.  The thickness of your slices will have a big impact on the cooking time.

Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with tinfoil (for easier cleanup). Lay slices of bacon on the cookie sheet, being sure they are not overlapping.  Sprinkle each piece of bacon with brown sugar. Bake in the oven for 15-25 minutes. The baking time will vary with the thickness of the slices.
