Oh Baby...Oh Baby...Oh Baby...this is my latest addiction. CANDIED BACON JERKY! There is nothing else out there that can compare to it. Not that I've ever had anyway.
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
8 to 10 strips of OSCAR MAYER bacon (no other will compare...just trust me on this matter). I could only fit 8 slices on my rack.
Preheat your oven to 225 degrees. Place a rack on rimmed baking sheet, line with foil and spray the rack generously with cooking spray. Not an olive oil or a butter spray...just a plain old spray. In a shallow bowl, such as a pie plate which I used here, combine the brown sugar and cayenne pepper. Dip/pat each slice of bacon on both sides in the brown sugar mixture, shaking off excess (I kind of sort of brushed the extra off), and placed it on the rack.
Bake bacon for 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Mine went the entire 3 hours. Flip the strips every hour. I set my kitchen timer for each hour. When it is done it will be a deep mahogany color (like the brown on Max-A-Million-Mahogany Forbes-now that's what I'm talking about!). Allow it to cool a minute or two then move it around so that it doesn't stick to the pan. It will firm up for sure as it cools.

  1. I'm imagining this atop a yellow cake with maple glaze. :) I wonder how many strips I can fit in my oven...

  2. haha..love your take on it...I got 8 to 9 strips on my rack...I've made three runs and we ate it all...my husband says it's just the best stuff EVER! Thanks for taking the time to post.

  3. Oh I can definitely see how this could be addicting. I don't know if 8 pieces would be enough. :)
