Cooking Corner: Candied Bacon

Bacon, a classic breakfast favorite, is popular because of its rich flavour and simplicity to cook. A simple spin to this treat is candied bacon. To make this delicious treat, you need an oven, a pan, aluminum foil, bacon, and brown sugar, along with 20 minutes. The strips can be eaten whole or broken up and used as toppings on foods like hamburgers or salads.

1 pound of thick-cut bacon
2/3 cup of brown sugar

First, preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. While the oven is heating, line a baking pan with aluminum foil and lay out as many strips as you can onto the pan, without overlapping. Once the oven is heated, insert the bacon and let it cook for 6-7 minutes. Take the pan out of the oven carefully and sprinkle a portion of the brown sugar (how much brown sugar will depend on what proportion of the bacon strips are being cooked). Place the pan back in the oven for another 6 minutes. Remove again and transfer bacon to a plate to cool. Repeat as many times as needed until all the bacon is cooked.
