Candied Bacon

  • Prep Time 0:05
  • Cook Time 0:25
  • Estimated Cost $3.50

OK, don’t freak out, but this is amazing. And i mean uhhh—maayyy-ziiing.

It’s not an everyday bacon (if there is such a thing as an “everyday bacon”), but once in awhile, crumbled atop a fancy salad, wedged into some mashed sweet potatoes or even chopped and served over bourbon vanilla ice cream, it’s magical.

It’s also addictive, so if you’re going to bother anyway, you might want to make a double-batch.


  • 1 12-oz package thick-cut bacon (preferably uncured) $3.50
  • light brown sugar Pantry

Recipe Serves 4-6


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil.
  2. Cut bacon slices in half, short-wise. Arrange, with a bit of space between them, on the foil-lined baking sheet.
  3. Sprinkle each piece of bacon evenly with about 1 tsp brown sugar.
  4. Bake for 22-25 minutes, until bacon is golden-brown. Remove from the oven and let cool completely before serving (this will help solidify the caramelized sugars).

I probably would snarf it all down but if I wanted to keep it (!) how would I do it? Would it freeze?
Thanks, Gabi!

Have you ever done this recipe and added some cayenne to the brown sugar? It’s so good, it’s spicy and sweet at the same time. Yum!

Awesome, looks great! Any idea if you can throw in a bit of chili pepper or would that throw the whole thing off?

This looks quite interesting to eat and I have to do this. Not now, as I am writing the best essays right now, but as soon as I am done writing those essays, I will definitely try to make this at home.
