Recipe by jillcomeau

This is great to serve at a brunch where you want something a little fancy but it's also wonderful anytime you have a few extra minutes to give your bacon a brown sugar rub down.

This hardly seems right. Bacon and sugar--together? Boy, I'm riding this one till it's tires wear out. Made for PAC Spring 2011.


  1. Preheat the broiler on your oven.
  2. Spray a broiler pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. Cut bacon strips in half. (It's easier to work with shorter pieces).
  4. Place brown sugar in a shallow dish or pie plate.
  5. Dredge bacon slices in brown sugar being sure to really press the sugar onto the meat.
  6. Place bacon pieces on broiler pan and sprinkle with remaining sugar.
  7. Broil until bacon is done and sugar is caramelized and slightly firm.
