Lacquered Bacon

Cut:

Falls Brand Bacon

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound Falls Brand Thick Sliced Bacon

  • 3 tablespoons light brown sugar, packed

  • 1 tablespoons red pepper flakes

Instructions:

Adjust the oven rack to the middle position and preheat the oven to 400°. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and set a large wire rack in the pan. Arrange the bacon slices on the rack and roast until the bacon renders some of its fat and the slices shrink significantly, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix the brown sugar and red pepper flakes. Carefully remove the baking sheet from the oven. Sprinkle mixture over the bacon and return the bacon to the oven and continue roasting until the sugar mixture adheres to the bacon and appears glossy. Serve hot.
