Sweet and spicy bacon is a great way to liven up any brunch gathering.
cup packed brown sugar
teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
lb bacon (8 slices)
Heat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheet with foil. Place wire rack on foil.
In large resealable food-storage plastic bag, add brown sugar and peppers; shake to mix. Separate bacon slices, and place in bag; shake to coat.
Arrange bacon in single layer on rack. Bake 20 minutes.
Turn bacon over; brush with brown sugar mixture. Bake 10 to 15 minutes longer or until golden brown. Remove from rack. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
Cayenne pepper is a hot, pungent powder made from several of various tropical chiles that originated in French Guiana.
The brown sugar mixture will give the bacon a delicious sweet and spicy caramelized flavor. Increase the amount of cayenne pepper for an extra-spicy treat.
