Amazing Candied Bacon
Montana Ranch and Cattle Company
This bacon is crispy, sweet, salty, and has a little kick to it. Thick sliced bacon coated in brown sugar before being baked to crispy, sticky, and caramelized perfection.
- 1 pound thick-cut bacon
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp. cracked black pepper
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/2 Tbsp. crushed red pepper flakes
Preheat oven to 375 F. Line a baking sheet pan with parchment paper or foil. Lay the uncooked bacon slices onto the pan.
In a small bowl mix together the brown sugar, cracked black pepper, cayenne pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes.
Sprinkle the mixture over the bacon slices, fully coating all of the slices. Using your hands, gently press the sugar onto the slices of bacon.
Bake for 30-40 minutes or until brown and crispy.
At the 30 minute mark remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes. Check the crispness and if it isn't as crisp as you'd like, put it back in for the full 40 minutes.
Be sure to let the slices fully cool, this will allow the caramelized sugar to harden.
