Serves 8

Time: 40 minutes. Everyone loves waking up to the smell of coffee and the smell of bacon, and the flavors are pretty awesome together too. Add some molasses-y brown sugar, and you'll reach bacon nirvana.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°. Line a rimmed baking pan with parchment or waxed paper and set a flat rack on top.

Step 2

Lay bacon strips on rack, overlapping slightly if needed. Sprinkle top of strips evenly with ground coffee. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and brewed coffee, stirring just to blend to a paste. Brush top of strips with half of sugar mixture.

Step 3

Bake 15 minutes. Turn bacon over and brush with remaining sugar glaze. Bake until crispy, 10 minutes more.

Step 4

The first bite I took of this while it was still piping hot was nirvana. The mixture of bitter coffee, savory bacon and brown sugar...mmmm... This is essentially a recipe for Candied Bacon, which I am not saying is bad at all, but I wouldn't serve it with Pancakes or anything that requires syrup. I made it with some very savory scrambled eggs and hash browns and it went very nicely. I should note that if you are in the habit of putting your bacon on a paper towel to absorb the grease - don't. The sugar will make it stick to the paper.

Bacon turned out delicious. But I have to agree with RenegadeMike, this is more like a 'candied' bacon. I prefer a crisper bacon but the results are still very tasty! Please check out my thoughts and photos on my blog. I modified the writing style of your recipe, but I did credit you and linked back here. Thanks again!
