Smoky Brown Sugar Bacon Recipe
Oxmoor House
This bacon takes a little while to prepare, but it's more than worth it. The aroma alone gets our highest rating.

Yield:

24 slices

Recipe from

Oxmoor House

Recipe Time

Prep: 12 Minutes
Cook: 20 Minutes

Ingredients

3 cups firmly packed light brown sugar
24 slices applewood smoked bacon (we tested with Nueske's)*

Preparation

Spread brown sugar onto a large plate; dredge half of bacon in sugar, pressing to be sure plenty of sugar sticks to both sides of bacon. Place bacon in a single layer on a large baking rack on an aluminum foil-lined rimmed baking sheet. Bake at 425° for 18 to 20 minutes or until crisp. Remove bacon from rack to a serving platter or parchment paper to cool. Repeat with remaining bacon and brown sugar.

*We used 1 1/2 (1-lb.) packages Nueske's applewood smoked bacon to yield the 24 slices; otherwise, any thick-cut bacon, smoked or not, would also work fine in this recipe.
