Brown Sugar Bacon

Brown Sugar Bacon is dangerously addictive. It's perfect for a cocktail party because it can be made ahead and held with one hand. This is not your average breakfast bacon!

  • 1 ½ pounds of thick cut bacon
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder


  • Preheat oven to 400°.
  • Line two cookie sheets with aluminum foil sprayed with cooking spray.
  • Mix the brown sugar and chili powder in a small bowl.
  • Lay the bacon on the cookie sheets leaving room in between pieces. Sprinkle with the brown sugar mixture.
  • Bake for 15-25 minutes. Cooking time will depend on your oven and you should check frequently. You want it to be crisp but not burnt. It will continue to crisp up after it's out of the oven.
