About this Recipe

This bacon will be one of the most addictive foods you ever make. It is the perfect combination of salty and sweet, with a hint of heat from the black pepper. Make sure you transfer the bacon from the tray to a wire rack immediately after the cook is completed to ensure it does not stick to the foil. Using thick-cut bacon is highly recommended for this recipe, as thin bacon can easily burn.


  • 2 slices thick-cut bacon
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon brown sugar, packed
