I have found the key to world peace. Are you ready for this? It’s brown sugar bacon. If we dropped that on countries instead of bombs, the world would be a happier place. Well, the part of the world that eats pork products, at least. Now don’t go thinking this is the stuff they sell in grocery stores labeled “brown sugar bacon” because that is just a sad imitation of what I made tonight. I don’t have pictures though, because let’s be honest, just how pretty is bacon really? Not pretty. Until you eat it and taste fireworks and rainbows and hear the hallelujah chorus. THEN it’s pretty.
Anyway, my brown sugar bacon is really more like candied bacon. And it’ll cure what ails ya! Trust me. So here’s what you do:
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place the slices of bacon on a broiler pan (this is the one I’ve got). I usually cut the strips in half, but if you don’t want to, you don’t have to. And make sure it’s on that broiler pan! It allows the fat to drip down and makes the bacon crisper, which tastes much better. Then sprinkle a little brown sugar over each slice and pat it down. It takes maybe 1/2 teaspoon to 1 teaspoon per piece, smoothed down over the piece of bacon. Bake for 20 minutes. Then eat. Watch as your life gets a little bit brighter. Share with others and make friends for life.
This bacon is delicious!! I know this might gross out some people, but please, suspend judgment until you try it. And please, TRY IT! You’ll thank me!
