Melissa's Cuisine: Brown Sugar Baked Bacon

Brown Sugar Baked Bacon

I just can't believe that we have just 12 days left in 2011...where has this year gone?  And now, once again, it's the 3rd Monday of the month.  By now, I'm sure you know what that means!  It's reveal date for Group C of the Secret Recipe Club.  You also know how much fun I have browsing though my assigned blog each month to find a delicious looking recipe to try out.

Secret Recipe Club


This month was no different.  I was assigned to Kimberly's blog, Rhubarb and Honey. Kimberly loves to share healthy and delicous food, and prefers to buy food produced locally and in a sustainable manner.  I can totally relate to that!  After reading through her many recipes, I decide on her Brown Sugar Baked Bacon .  Simple, and delicous!

Growing up, I remember my brother always dipping his bacon into syrup when we had bacon with pancakes or waffles.  I figured this was a similar concept, sweet bacon.  I thought this was a fun way to make bacon a little differently, and I think it could also be used in baked goods, similar to how people use chocolate covered bacon.  One note though, as you can see, some of the edges of my bacon got rather dark (I think the sugar started to burn), while the middle stayed a bit wobbly.  (Probably because I used regular bacon, not thick cut.)  Just keep an eye on the bacon and you should be fine!    
Brown Sugar Baked Bacon

1 pound thick cut bacon (I used regular bacon)
1/2 cup brown sugar

1.  Preheat oven to 375 and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

2.  Place the bacon on the cookie sheet side by side.

3.  Sprinkle brown sugar over the bacon and rub it in a bit. 

4.  Place the pan on the top rack of the oven and bake for 40-45 minutes, until browned and crispy. 

Serve hot.
