The Recipe: Come to Jesus Bacon

There are certain things in life that give you that profound sense that we are not alone in the universe; that there is a higher power. Some things are so great, you have to point to God and say, "Yes!" this is the proof I need. This recipe is one of those things. Try it. I guarantee you will fall on your knees thanking God for bacon.

The Cast:
Bacon, thick, thin - it doesn't matter
Light brown sugar

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and sprinkle about 1/2 cup of brown sugar on a plate - add more sugar as needed. Gently pat your raw bacon slices in the brown sugar and place on cookie sheet with deep sides. Do not use a flat cookie sheet as the bacon will shed grease while cooking and you want to capture that grease and not have it drip in your oven.

Once you fill your pan with your sugared bacon slices place in the oven for 15 - 20 minutes, depending on how crispy you like your bacon. When bacon is cooked drain on a rack and do not put on paper towels as the bacon will stick. Don't ask how I know that last bit.

I made this bacon last weekend and Frodo says we are not allowed to cook bacon any other way from now on. His view of the bacon was that I made 'candied bacon'. Enjoy!
