Sweet and Spicy Bacon

Have you ever heard of this?  More importantly, have you ever tasted it?  Holy Cow!  When I was in bookclub, part of the fun was the breakfast.  One of the best cooks in the world, Bobette, made this when it was her turn.  It was sooooo good.  I had the recipe prior to tasting it, but had never made it.  It is worth it.  Spicy, sweet and salty all in one.  Bacon lovers, this takes it to a new level.

1 1/2 tbls. packed brown sugar
Rounded 1/4 tsp. cayenne
Rounded 1/4 tsp. black pepper
1 lb. thick cut bacon - 12 slices

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Stir together brown sugar, cayenne, and black pepper in a small bowl.

Arrange bacon slices in 1 layer on a large broiler pan and bake in middle of oven 20 minutes.  Turn slices over and sprinkle evenly with spiced sugar.  Continue baking until bacon is crisp and brown, 12-20 minutes more, then transper fo paper towels to drain.
