You know my love affair with odd ball recipes, but this one may just take the cake, or at least be sweet as cake. Now, when I first read this at Mommy's Kitchen I did think "why", but as I read on the thought of giving this a try teased my cooking addiction into giving it a chance, after all, it does come highly recommend, Paula Deen makes it! Actually, I was thinking the men might like it at deer camp this year?
1/4 c. light brown sugar
1/4 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
1/2 tsp. cayenne ( optional)
1/2 pound thick cut bacon, 8 slices
Preheat oven to 375. Mix brown sugar, cayenne and pepper together in a med. bowl. Add bacon and toss. Line a baking sheet with a wire rack and lay bacon on the rack. Pat any remanding spice mixture on the bacon. Put the baking sheet on the top rack of the oven and bake till crisp, about 15 min. Remove from oven to a serving dish and let cool slightly before serving.
Oink! I know, the fat content already but once in awhile won't hurt us, right? I just love the name, I'm making it just for the names sake! lol Let me know what you think about this one, will you be brave and sugar your next batch of bacon? If you do, let me know how you liked it would you?
