Bacon Candy

Candied Bacon


  • 1 lb of Bacon
  • 1/2 cup of Brown Sugar (or more as  needed)


  1. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Dredge slices of bacon though brown sugar. (If you like spice, add a tablespoon of chili powder.)
  2. Arrange bacon in a single layer on the parchment paper.

Feelin' fancy? Warm up a 1/2 cup of pure maple syrup (do not use pancake syrup) and brush on both sides of bacon before sprinkling brown sugar on. Cook same as below.


  1. Broil for 7 minutes on low or you can bake at 400° for 20 minutes or until crisp.


  1. Preheat grill to 300°. Put the baking sheet on the grill and cook bacon for 30 minutes or until as crispy as you like!
