Cayenne-Candied Bacon

Cayenne-Candied Bacon created by KellyMae

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.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  • Line a broiler pan with aluminum foil, and position broiler rack on top of pan.

  • Combine the brown sugar and cayenne in a shallow dish, and mix well.
  • Press one side of each slice of bacon firmly into the spiced sugar to coat.
  • Arrange the slices of bacon on top of the broiler rack in a single layer, sugared-side up.
  • If there is any sugar remaining in the dish, sprinkle it evenly on top of the bacon.
  • Bake until the bacon is crisp and the sugar is bubbly, 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Drain on paper towels and serve warm or at room temperature.

    Takes way longer than 20 minutes at 350.

    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.
