Candied Bacon


READY IN: 20-40 minutes (depending on bacon preference)


1 Package of Regular Sliced Bacon*

1 Cup Brown Sugar

¼ Cup Granulated Sugar

1 Teaspoons Black Pepper

1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder

¼ to ½ Teaspoon Chili Powder

Red Pepper Flakes for Garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Line a large-rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and set a wire rack inside the rimmed baking sheet to allow for grease drainage and a crispier product.
  3. In a large mixing bowl combine brown sugar and granulated sugar with spices.
  4. Toss one or two slices of the bacon in the sugar-spice mixture to coat them before laying them across the wire rack that has been set inside the baking sheet.
  5. Once all slices of bacon have been pre-coated and laid on the wire rack inside the baking sheet go back and sprinkle the remaining sugar-spice mixture along the tops of each of the slices to taste. Garnish the bacon slices with a sprinkling of Red Pepper Flakes
  6. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes or to desired doneness.
  7. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes for the sugars to harden.

*If thick-sliced bacon is preferred, reduce the heat to 375 degrees F and bake for 30 to 40 minutes
