If you think bacon tastes good straight out of the frying pan, wait until you try this candied bacon recipe.

Sweet & Spicy Candied Bacon Recipe

OMG!

They say the simple things in life are the best, and after tasting this sweet and spicy treat, I can’t argue.

A little brown sugar and pepper are all you need to transform breakfast bacon into an out-of-this world sandwich topper, crunchy-sweet salad crumbles, a party finger food and an all-day nibble.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Arrange 7 or 8 slices of bacon on top of the parchment.

Sprinkle with 2 or 3 Tablespoons of dark brown sugar.

Season liberally with fresh ground pepper.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes. Watch the bacon carefully to make sure it doesn’t burn, as the sugar will caramelize as it cooks. When the bacon looks almost done, turn over and bake on the other side for the last 5 minutes of cooking time, until the bacon is chewy-crisp but not charred.

Remove from pan and drain (sugared side up) on paper towels. Don’t leave the bacon on the paper towels too long or they may stick to the candied bacon.

Oh, and don’t throw away the browned sugary bits on the parchment. They’re delicious sprinkled on top of a wedge salad topped with crumbled candied bacon.

Candied bacon is pretty tasty all by itself. It’s a great finger food for parties.

  1. Oh lawd! I haven’t had any appetite in three weeks, but this recipe could change that!

  2. Tim would love this, especially in a wedge salad! Okay, I would love it, too!

      I’m thinking of adding some to a spinach and blueberry and feta (or blue cheese) salad this week. Maybe I’ll throw in some grilled chicken and call it dinner!

  3. Is it crunchy?

      It really depends on how long you cook it. If you let it brown longer, it will get crunchy. I usually remove mine from the oven before it gets to that stage, so it’s a little chewy crunchy. It’s really just personal preference. I’m not a big fan of crunchy bacon.

      If you do leave the bacon in the oven longer, just watch it to make sure the sugar doesn’t burn or char.

  4. Oh my gosh! This sounds so good and I’m so full right now! But trying this tomorrow morning.
