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.


Coat bacon

  • In medium bowl, combine brown sugar with a couple pinches of black pepper.
  • Add bacon and coat with brown sugar mixture, making sure all of the mixture adheres to the bacon.

  • Line Brava metal tray with aluminum foil.
  • Place bacon in Zone 2 of metal tray.
  • Slide metal tray into bottom shelf. Press green button to begin cooking.


Cool bacon and serve
