  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.

  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.
