That's right...you heard me! I said CARAMELIZED BACON! It's delicious and easy to make too! Here's what you need:
1 pound of your favorite bacon (the thicker the better)
1 cup brown sugar
Preheat your oven to 350. I like to pour the brown sugar into a 9x13 pan. Place the bacon in the pan a few slices at a time. Make sure to coat both sides evenly. Shake off extra sugar and place bacon on a lined baking sheet (foil or parchment paper). Sprinkle what sugar is left onto the bacon. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until crispy. Keep a close eye on your bacon! it will burn FAST! Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes. Transfer the bacony goodness to a wire rack to finish cooling. The longer it sits, the crispier it gets. If you wan to soften it up a bit, just put it back it the oven for a minute or two. Enjoy!
You can spice it up too! Just sprinkle with a little cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes before you baking.
