Brown Sugar Bacon

Let’s talk bacon!  Who doesn’t like bacon?  Come to think of it, I do have a friend that doesn’t like it.  There is obviously something wrong with her!  I suggest therapy.

One of my closest friends is obsessed with the stuff.  I always try to send her new recipes.  I once bought her a roll of packing tape with pictures of bacon on it.  I also found a bacon scented hanging car deodorizer or maybe I should say – odorizer.  It really reeked.  She misplaced it and couldn’t figure out why there was an awful smell in the family room.  It was all my fault.

Anyway, I was watching Down Home with the Neelys on the Food Network and they had a new way of cooking bacon with brown sugar.  It is transcendent. You won’t believe how good this is…

Brown Sugar Bacon

Serves 4

1/2 cup brown sugar
1 Tbs Dijon mustard
1/4 lb sliced bacon

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

In a large plastic zip-top bag, combine brown sugar and mustard. Add bacon and toss to coat.

Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Place a cooling rack on the lined baking sheet. Put bacon on rack and roast in oven for 20 minutes. Let drain for a few minutes on the rack and serve.
