• Delicious Candied Bacon

    My friend Judy Hasley reminded me years ago that I love candied bacon. Although there are many different and delicious flavors, I think this one just might be my favorite.

    None of the recipes call for it, but I actually like to cook my bacon until it is about half way done before I sugar it. It seems to help me get rid of a lot of the fat. Of course, I use Pederson’s all natural bacon.


    Preheat oven to 375 degrees

    8 slices bacon

    3 tablespoons brown sugar
    1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

    I use quite a bit more sugar than the recipe calls for and then adjust the cinnamon to our preference.

    Lay a wire rack on top of a baking sheet.

    On a large plate, mix sugar and cinnamon. Coat bacon slices with the mix, lightly patting the sugar on top. Lay strips on wire rack and bake for 20-25 minutes or until done, flipping the bacon once. Remove and drain on paper towel.
