Brown Sugar Bacon

I’m not sure who thought to put brown sugar on bacon, but am I glad they did! As if bacon alone isn’t good enough, this is just over the top delicious.  Just a warning that while this is delicious, and a bit addictive, the bacon is also very sticky.  As you can see from the photo, the sugar can burn on the pan so you may want to put down some tin foil or something  for easy clean up.

      No way! I do have to let it cook longer to get it nice and crispy in the oven. I’m sure you could just sprinkle some brown sugar in a frying pan with the bacon, but it might get really sticky!


  1. […] Cooking bacon is an art form.  There are so many variables starting with the right pan. Then there is maintaining the right temperature on the stove, and deciding how long to cook it. Should I mention that it has to be done in batches? It is almost guaranteed that some of it is going to get burned, because you will be multitasking and get distracted for just 10 seconds too long, then you have lost a few slices because they are burnt to a crisp. In addition, there is the issue of our olfactory senses. While the bacon is cooking, it gives off a wonderful aroma wafting through the house. It is such a pleasant way to wake up. When it reaches your nose, you know there is something good going on in the kitchen. But after breakfast is over, there is that, “Oh, you had bacon for breakfast” smell in the house that can last for days. And cleaning bacon grease out of the pan is a problem.  How to dispose of the grease? Nobody wants to clean the greasy skillet. And everybody makes bacon. All bacon tastes the pretty much the same. Wouldn’t it be nice if there were an easy way to cook an entire pound of bacon at once? Wouldn’t it make you happy to know there is a way to make the clean up a breeze? What if it even tasted incredible! Impossible you say. Bacon is so wonderful, there is no way to improve upon it! Well, you are wrong! Without paying designer bacon prices, you too can have gourmet slices at home for just a fraction of the cost! How can this be, you ask? The answer to all your bacon dilemmas  is provided by Camille at Growing up Gable. […]
