Bacon with Black Pepper and Rosemary

Time: about 15 minutes. Black pepper and rosemary make bacon (already a perfect food) even better. This recipe is an adaptation of one in Tyler's Ultimate (Clarkson Potter, 2006; $35), and is one of the toppings chef Tyler Florence puts on his Ultimate Burgers.
