I make this for the guy's birthday breakfasts, at their request. Think this recipe comes from the Martha Stewart website.

Love bacon made in this way, very similar to another zaar recipe Ive tried, the flavour is great. Like honey cured, delicious. Thanks for posting.

I have found that if you mix the brown sugar with 1-2 tbsp of flour in a zip top bag and add the bacon slices to the bag, you can shake it to coat and the brown suger will not burn. Just shake off the excess coating first. I go at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes and the bacon is almost always crispy and crumbly. If I use straight brown suger, the sugar will carmelize too soon and burn! You can also add your favorite spices to the mix for added flavor. No mess when you shake it up in the zip top bag! Spray the foil so the bacon does not stick to it.

I have made this before but I bake it on a wire rack with tin foil on pan below to save clean up. I sprinkle the sugar on and then put lots of black pepper!! delish!!!! cuts the sweetness or just adds to it!
