This recipe doubles and triples easily—and you’ll probably want to do that once you try the candied bacon. The sky’s the limit when it comes to toppings, too. Add a touch of savory to the equation with a sprinkling of fennel seeds for a licorice flavor, crushed pink peppercorns for a fruity floral taste, black pepper for a pure pepper kick, or cayenne for a touch of heat.
In a large bowl, toss the bacon and brown sugar together gently to coat each slice in the sugar. Lay the bacon in an even layer on the baking sheet, leaving a bit of room in between the slices. If desired, sprinkle any spice evenly over the top.
