Cayenne Candied Bacon
  • 1 lb turkey bacon (feel free to use regular but adjust cooking times'll see from pictures that I did both)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ¾ tsp cayenne pepper
  • vegetable oil or cooking spray
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cover a large baking sheet with foil. Spray an oven safe nonstick cooling rack with cooking spray and place on top of the foil.
  3. Lay bacon flat on the rack without the pieces touching.
  4. In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar and cayenne pepper. Spread on top of the bacon pieces. {Note: You may not use the entire sugar mixture}
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Turn the pan 180 degrees and bake for an additional 10 minutes. At this point, check the bacon every 2 minutes or so until done.
  6. Let cool on the baking rack for 2 minutes and then transfer to parchment paper or nonstick foil.
