This was so delicious. Mmmm - crispy and sweet, with a little bit of zip. Everyone loved this - and it was great for company since it bakes in the oven.
I made this for my family for Sunday brunch. DD went nuts over it. They all agreed it was five stars. Thank you for posting....Stephanie
Our family really enjoyed this bacon recipe. It was so easy and the bacon cooked perfectly. I think I'll start cooking all of our bacon in the oven now. Thanks WaterMelon.
Wonderful! Everyone loved this bacon for Christmas breakfast. Just the right amount of spiciness balanced with a touch of sweetness. Thick cut bacon is so good here. Easy to prepare with no splatters to clean up. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
I served this on a buffet of finger foods at a breakfast party. With the bacon slices cut into thirds, this made perfect little portions. I only rubbed the brown sugar and cayenne mixture on one side of the bacon, but the flavor was still excellent. I also lined my baking pans with foil first for easy clean up. This was a hit.
This added a nice flavor to the bacon.It wasn't overly sweet with a mild spicy taste. The only thing I will have to different next time will be to shorten the cooking time. Thanks WaterMelon. Bullwinkle
was was good, I added red pepper flakes for a little more kick.The house smelled so good while this was baking,and was so much easier than frying.TFS this WaterMelon.
Yummy! I loved this! I used my pampered chef baking pan and although the bacon did get quite black it did not taste burnt. I will make this again, thanks for suggesting this to me.
This is so GOOD!!!! We decided to have breakfast for dinner tonight and I figured this would be the perfect opportunity to enjoy this recipe that I chose for Pick Your Chef Nov '04. Crispy, sweet and zippy... just wonderful! I made a third of the recipe for 2 people (that is, 4 slices). I also had to cook at a higher temp - 400F- because we were also cooking Spicy Hash Browns #519 in the oven. So I just adjusted the cooking time and they came out perfect! I have never made bacon in the oven before, but I have heard others rave about it, and now I'm glad I have! It leaves you with a wonderfully crisp piece of bacon! I was really amazed at how much bacon grease drained off these- I think that its nice that they weren't fried in their own grease too. I am really enamored with breakfast recipes that can be cooked in the oven (like Spicy Hash Browns #519) because usually breakfast has so many stovetop dishes (pancakes, bacon or sausages, eggs, french toast, etc.) We served this with blueberry pancakes, the hash browns, as I mentioned and fried eggs. So yummy! I think that you could up the cayenne a bit if you wanted it a bit spicier. I used Niman Ranch nitrate-free applewood-smoked bacon. Thanks for a delicious change from the norm!
