Sweet & Spicy Candied Bacon

candied bacon with salt served on a wooden serving tray

Liz Robin, Chimney Springs Women’s B4

1 lb. bacon
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes, 1 tsp if you like it really spicy
1 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. cayenne
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper

In a medium bowl, pour all ingredients, except the bacon, together and mix well with a fork. Take a package of bacon, cut the strips in half, and place them on a foil-lined cookie sheet. Spread the sugar mixture over all the pieces of bacon, making sure to cover every spot. If you have enough, turn the bacon over and coat the other side as well. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. The bacon should be crispy but not burnt. You might need to bake for a few minutes longer. I suggest doing this in 2-minute intervals because the sugar will start to burn very quickly if left in too long. UPDATE: I have found that turning the bacon over after cooking for 10 mins works well.
