Candied Bacon

Candied Bacon


  • 1 pound thick cut bacon (you can use maple or peppered bacon for increased taste)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • Black pepper, to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  • In a bowl, put the brown sugar, dry mustard, and black pepper, and combine well.
  • Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil
  • Arrange your bacon on the baking sheet and spoon the brown sugar mixture over the bacon strips – using it all!

Bake for 15 – 20 minutes. Check the bacon at 15 minutes and if it is not as crispy as you would like, bake it for a few more minutes. Do not over bake – remember bacon will become crispier as it cools. Your bacon will become crispier, and you can drain off some of the fat, if you place the individual strips on a cooling rack when you take them from the oven. The candied bacon can be served warm or cold. We had it cold at Grazing day.
