5 Strips of bacon

3 teaspoons of light brown sugar


Preheat your oven to 400ºF

Lay each slice of bacon on a baking sheet that is lined with either a silicone mat or aluminum foil.

Sprinkles the 3 teaspoons of sugar over the bacon, ensuring that each piece is equally covered.

After your oven is preheated, bake for 12-16 minutes. Halfway through baking, flip each strip over while dragging it through the syrupy liquid on the baking sheet.

Remove the bacon from the oven then place the strips on a wire rack to cool.
