- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Lay bacon on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
- Sprinkle with brown sugar, salt, pepper and crushed red chiles.
- Bake for 20 minutes.
- Drain and serve.
Delish! Very simple and very tasty. DH thought that it was too sweet, but the rest of us totally enjoyed it. Make sure that you spread the sugar and red pepper flakes evenly over the bacon, otherwise you end up with little 'pockets' of either sweet or spice.
