  • Summary

    Making candied bacon is one of those a-ha moments—why didn't I ever do this before? The magic happens in the oven and only takes half an hour. Eat it as is, crumble it over salad, or use it to garnish a Bloody Mary. We don't need to tell you what to do with bacon, right?

    Ingredients

    • 12 strips bacon (not thick-cut, about one pound)
    • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper (optional)
