Memphis Country Club Candied Bacon

Bacon, sliced                           1 lb.

Sugar, white                                      1 lb.

Non-Stick Spray                     as needed

Method:

  1. Pre-heat an oven to 300°F.
  2. Place a wire roasting rack onto a sheet pan and liberally spray the rack.
  3. Individually, dredge each slice of bacon in the sugar and place it onto the rack, single layer with no overlapping of slices.
  4. Once the rack is full, place the sheet pan of sugared bacon into the pre-heated oven for about 8 minutes.
  5. Remove the bacon from the oven and flip each piece over, and return the bacon to the oven for an additional 5-9 minutes, or until brown and crispy.  Do not allow the sugar to over cook, or it will develop a bitter flavor.
  6. Remove the bacon from the oven, and place cooked bacon onto a piece of parchment paper sprayed with non-stick spray to cool.
  7. Bacon is best served at room temperature.

 *Notes:

  1. Bacon must be prepared the day of service, it does not hold well.
  2. Brown sugar can be substituted for white sugar.
  3. Other flavors can be added to the sugar prior to baking: fresh chopped thyme, black pepper, sesame seeds, etc.
  4. May be easier to turn oven off after 16 min and let cool down in oven, makes for a bit crisper bacon.
