As this bacon sizzles the brown sugar and cayenne create an addictive sweet-hot glaze.

1 1/2 Tbsp. packed brown sugar; rounded 1/4 tsp. each of black and cayenne peppers; 1 lb. Thick sliced bacon (about 12 slices) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Stir together brown sugar, cayenne, and black pepper. Arrange bacon slices in 1 layer (don't overlap) on rack of large broiler pan. Bake 20 minutes. Turn slices over and sprinkle evenly with spiced sugar. Continue baking until crisp and golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes more (checking every 5 minutes because depending on the thickness of the bacon). Drain on paper towels.

Cooks Note: Buy the thickest bacon you can find for this recipe and watch it closely or you will have burnt bacon.
Serves 3 to 6
