  • 1 pounds - sliced bacon
  • 1 cups - brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoons - cayenne pepper
  • Directions:

    Combine sugar and cayenne pepper in a bowl.

    Spread slices of bacon (not touching each other) on a grid over baking sheet lined with aluminum foil (for easier cleaning). Heavily sprinkle bacon with 1/2 of sugar mixture.

    Bake on 400F for 10 minutes. Take out of oven and turn the bacon over. Spread the rest of sugar mixture on the other side of bacon.

    Bake for additional 10 min (approximately) - until nicely brown. It's important to watch it, since slices are different thickness and ovens heat differently. Amount of sugar and cayenne pepper could be adjusted to taste.

    Helpful tip: line the baking sheet with aluminum foil for easier cleaning.
