1/2 cup brown sugar     
1 tablespoon maple syrup (optional)   

Preheat oven to 400º
Mix brown sugar and maple syrup in a small bowl; set aside
Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil
Place bacon in a single layer on sheet pan
Press sugar mixture onto bacon (top surface only)
Bake 18-20 minutes until brown and crisp, checking bacon frequently for doneness
Place a sheet of foil under a wire cooling rack to catch drips; transfer bacon from sheet pan to wire rack to cool

Pecan Sugared Bacon: add 1/3 cup finely chopped pecans to sugar mixture
Sugar and Spice Bacon: add 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon ground mustard powder to sugar; omit maple syrup


  • for smaller pieces, cut bacon slices in half crosswise before proceeding with the recipe
  • If you prefer a less sweet bacon, use only 1/3 cup of sugar
