    Pepper Monkey's Note:

    This goes with the spicy breakfast bake. But it sounds good enough to serve with just about any breakfast dish. This was made by Emeril Lagasse on Good Morning America this morning. It looks sooo good, i can't wait to try it.

      Very good. The second time making this I more than doubled the cayenne, for a bit more head. Also sprinkled more of the brown sugar mixture on top. Cooked at a higher temperature and since I used a thick bacon cooked it longer.

      Quite delicious. Made a half recipe. Didn't oil the foil-lined broiler pan, and had no problems removing the cooked bacon. Effortless and tasty way to cook bacon! Thanks for posting.

      Had this for breakfast today along with scrambled eggs. OK, I could have eaten another pound of bacon! Draining on paper towels was a bit of a problem as the sticky bacon didn't want to leave without bits of the towel attached, so do this with really heavy-duty paper towels. The aluminum foil was great, just gather up into a ball and toss.
