Yield

Ingredients

  • 24 slices bacon
  • 2 to 3 Tbsp. pepper
  • 2 to 3 Tbsp. dark brown sugar

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF. Line a baking sheet with foil; place a baking rack on top. Mist rack with cooking spray. Arrange 12 slices of bacon on rack. Sprinkle on 1 to 1 1/2 Tbsp. pepper and dark brown sugar. Roast until bacon begins to brown, about 15 minutes. Remove sheet from oven. Place bacon on a paper towel-lined plate.
