Instructions

  1. Add brown sugar to a shallow bowl or plate. Press each slice of bacon into the brown sugar on all sides, and place the slices on an oven safe metal rack over a lined baking dish.
  2. Sprinkle remaining brown sugar over the top of the bacon. If desired also add pepper.
  3. Bake at 350° F until bacon is crisped (about 30 minutes), watching closely to make sure the sugar doesn’t begin to burn. (If you’re using thick cut bacon, it will still be chewy when it’s done).
