‘Great Sauces Transform Good Food into Gourmet’
No fry bacon
Bacon’s a signature side for breakfast or brunch. To prepare those nice flat strips you enjoy in restaurants you have to roast rather than fry. All it takes is a baking sheet and a piece of non-stick foil. Lightly drizzle brown sugar over the bacon. It caramelizes while baking. My favorite part is that I don’t have to tend it. I can put it in the oven to bake while I fry the pancakes, bake the waffles or scramble the eggs. And it doesn’t take up a burner. This bacon is especially good for those who love maple bacon.
You might also enjoy BLAT on Wheat (Bacon Lettuce Avocado and Tomato Sandwiches), Black Bean Breakfast Burritos, Hot Cereal trio, Maple Coconut Granola, Tahitian French Toast, Wheatberry Blender Pancakes, Quick Quiche with Ham and Veg, Country Sausage and German Pancakes.
Recipe: Brown Sugar Bacon
Prep Time: 3 Minutes | Cook Time: 18 Minutes | Yield: 4 Servings | Level: Easy
- 8 thick sliced bacon
- 2 Tbsp light brown sugar
Special Equipment – baking sheet
1 Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
3 Bake for 15-18 minutes depending on the thickness of the bacon. Turn the strips over half way through the cooking time.
4 Place bacon on a plate lined with paper towels.
For some added spice, generously sprinkle freshly ground black pepper over the bacon. Plain bacon also bakes well in the oven without the brown sugar.
Use this bacon on burgers, BLT’s, subs and crumble on salads.
- Exchange light for dark brown sugar.
- Exchange thick sliced bacon for regular but reduce the baking time.
