Candied Bacon Ingredients:

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 tablespoons maple syrup

About 1/2 pound bacon


  1. Heat oven to 350°F and place a rack in the middle.

  2. Mix together the brown sugar and maple syrup in a medium bowl; set aside.

  3. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper and arrange the bacon strips parallel, side by side. Evenly coat both sides of the bacon with the sugar-syrup mixture by either dipping each piece into the mixture or applying it with a pastry brush. Cook until the bacon looks caramelized, about 20 minutes. Let cool for 15 minutes before serving.
