Oh my, but this was good!  I made a batch of this pepper bacon and before it was barely cooled I had consumed or rather inhaled at least half of it.  Sadly this was all that remained from one pound of bacon.  Seven slices.  I made a special trip back to the market for another package.  Bacon addicts anonymous should be notified.

I think I’ve demonstrated how good it is on its own but added to a spicy grilled cheese is pure bacon heaven (my recipe here) and I have a very easy breakfast recipe coming soon for a little bacon and egg delight.  The crispy sweet with a subtle bite of pepper was irresistible.


  • 1 lb bacon of choice
  • ¼ cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp ground pepper
  1. Lay bacon slices side by side on grill sheet or baking pan trying not to over lap.
  2. Depending on the size of your pan, you may have to cook the bacon in batches.
  3. Mix brown sugar and pepper together and spread generously and evenly over each slice of bacon
  4. In a hot oven (450 deg) or grill set at 450 deg cook bacon until crisp and sugar has caramelized, about 12 - 15 miiinutes
  5. I find that if your oven is hot enough you shouldn't have to flip the bacon.
  6. Lay cook bacon on sheets of paper towel to absorb any extra grease.
  7. When cooled, refrigerate until ready to use if you can resist eating it.
