This deliciously crispy and sweet baked candied bacon is perfect for a fun twist on breakfast, a new finger food snack, or even as a garnish in a Bloody Mary.
‣ 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed ‣ 2 tablespoon water ‣ 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste ‣ 12 slices applewood smoked bacon
In a small bowl, whisk together the ingredients for the glaze: brown sugar, water, and cayenne pepper (optional, but I highly recommend it).
Arrange the bacon in an even layer on top of a broiler pan. The bacon can be as close together as you need it to be, so long as they aren’t directly touching.
Using a basting brush, generously brush on the brown sugar glaze on the top side of the bacon. Once done, bake!
