ingredients

directions

  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Mix the chili powder and brown sugar in a shallow bowl.
  • Fit a sheet of parchment paper onto a jelly-roll pan.
  • Bury each slice of bacon in the chili and sugar mixture; rub both sides to assure the mixture adheres.
  • Lay the bacon strips on the prepared pan.
  • The bacon strips may be left flat or twisted two or three times by holding each end to make a candied "stick".
  • Bake for 30 minutes without turning.
  • Always transfer candied bacon using tongs; the hot sugar can easily burn your fingers.

    Everyone in the family here loves bacon, and what a treat to find a recipe we can use for a snack. I made it twice -- the first time I covered the bacon slices generously with the brown sugar mixture, but they came out of the oven a little burnt. So I made them again, this time brushing any excess sugar off the bacon slices and they didn't burn at all. Both times I did have a problem getting the slices as crispy as I would have liked, but the taste was terrific nonetheless. And the applewood bacon was a flavor I had never tried before. Two of us finished the entire batch in one sitting; it was that good. Thanks for posting.

    I don't eat meat, but saw this recipe and wondered how it would work with veggie bacon. WOW. This was so good. I'm glad I just used 3 slices bacon or I would have eaten the whole package. Thanks for the inspiration Boomette! Made for the Australian Swap-Sept. 2011.
