Appetizer Brunch Cocktail Party Test Kitchen

Roasted Caramelized Bacon

We were about to have a Holiday Party and R.S.V.P. list was getting out of hand, so we had to call a caterer to come help out. When I said caramelized bacon had to be served, the careering company manager, Jen, pushed back and suggested people were looking for lighter and healthier fare.  I rejected the notion and ordered up the bacon that was quickly consumed by everyone at the party.

  • Thickly-cut bacon from your butcher, and much as you need
  • Light brown sugar

Making it

  • Place the bacon on rimmed baking sheets lined with either tinfoil or parchment paper
  • Rub the light brown sugar on all the bacon

Time to Cook

  • Set the oven to 400 degrees and when it reaches the desired temperature put the bacon in the oven and cook for 16 to 20 minutes
  • If you have more than one baking sheet, rotate the sheets half way through cooking
  • Let cool and serve
