National Bacon Day — Candied Bacon. Need I say more?!

This is truly one of my favorite recipes. I serve this bacon at cocktail parties, brunches, even sometimes at dinners. It’s decadent, easy and irresistible.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Candied Bacon

1 package thick-cut bacon

Fresh ground pepper

Light brown sugar

Preheat the oven to 325°.   Cut the bacon in half, and place on a rack over a foil-covered pan.  Lightly season with pepper.  Sprinkle each strip with a thin layer of brown sugar.

Place in oven and bake 25 to 40 minutes, depending on the thickness of bacon.  Remove when crispy.

Serve immediately, or set aside to cool.  Can be made one day in advance, and reheated before serving.  Best when served warm or at room temperature.
