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.
