What's For Lunch Wednesday: Candied Bacon

Posted: Updated:

6 strips center cut bacon

2 c. brown sugar

1/2 c. maple syrup

1/3 Tbsp. cayenne pepper

In a large bowl, combine pepper and syrup and mix. Add the bacon and toss until coated. Lay out the bacon on a baking sheet or a pan with a rack. Lightly coat the top of each piece of bacon with the brown sugar. Place in a 350 degree oven and bake for 7 to 8 minutes, or until bacon is almost completely cooked through. Remove and allow to cool to room temp. Be careful, as the sugar will continue to cook after you've removed the bacon from the oven. Chop it up and add it to a salad or enjoy it on a BLT.
