Million Dollar Bacon
Recipe type: Breakfast
Prep time:

Total time: 
Serves: 12
  • 1lb thick cut bacon
  • 6 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  1. Begin by preheating your oven to 350° and lining a baking sheet with parchment paper. (You can sub aluminum foil if you don’t have any parchment paper lying around.)
  2. Sprinkle the bacon with about half of the brown sugar.
  3. Sprinkle on the red pepper flakes, cayenne and cracked black pepper.
  4. Sprinkle the rest of the brown sugar on the top and then give it a good pat all over. Think of it as a rub that’s going to coat your bacon in candy-like goodness. You don’t really have to worry about coating the reverse side because as the bacon cooks, the sugary coating will run under it and coat the other side of the bacon, too.
  5. Bake for 20 – 30 minutes, until it reaches your desired crispiness. Done and done!
