Brown Sugar Bacon
Brown Sugar Bacon is great by itself, on a burger or whatever your little heart can come up with! You need this in your life!
We made burgers on Sunday for my brother in laws birthday and we had to each bring toppings for a burger we’d like to eat. The brown sugar bacon I thought would be perfect for a teriyaki burger. Everyone was eating it plain which is fine, because at least it got eaten! This is super simple for anything you want to use it for.
- 1 lb. thick cut bacon
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Position racks in the top and bottom of the oven. Line cookie sheets with foil and set cooling racks into the cookie sheets.
- Using your fingers, crumble together the brown sugar and smoked paprika on a plate. Dredge the bacon on both sides in the brown sugar mixture, rubbing so the sugar adheres. Arrange the slices on the racks without touching.
- Bake until the bacon is crisp and caramelized, flipping the slices and rotating the baking sheets from top to bottom halfway through, about 20 to 30 minutes total depending on how crispy you like it. Let the slices cool on the racks, turning once or twice so they don’t stick.
