Candied bacon is a sweet and savory treat that can be enjoyed by itself or used as a topping on other recipes.

Like any good American, Janette and I both LOVE bacon. We hold all parts of the pig dear to our hearts, but bacon is the clear favorite.

Naturally, we end up making a lot of recipes that incorporate it. I made this Candied Bacon to go in another dessert recipe I’ll be posting later this week, but I promise no one will judge if you just eat handfuls of it by itself.

Candied Bacon Recipe
  • 5 Strips of bacon
  • 3 teaspoons of light brown sugar
  1. Preheat your oven to 400ºF
  2. Lay each slice of bacon on a baking sheet that is lined with either a silicone mat or aluminum foil.
  3. Sprinkles the 3 teaspoons of sugar over the bacon, ensuring that each piece is equally covered.
  4. After your oven is preheated, back for 12-16 minutes. Half way through baking, flip each strip over while dragging it through the syrupy liquid on the baking sheet.
  5. Remove the bacon from the oven then place the strips on a wire rack to cool.
