When writing the intro for this recipe, we considered: "Bacon. Brown Sugar. Cinnamon. That is all." That's because this dish doesn't need much more of a description. Make this and then prepare yourself for accolades, compliments and quite possibly a marriage proposal.
1 lb thick cut bacon
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 tsp Cayenne
1/2 tsp Vietnamese Cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine the brown sugar, Cayenne and Vietnamese Cinnamon in a shallow dish. Lay the bacon slices, one by one, in the brown sugar mixture. Move the slices, sugar side up, onto a baking rack placed over a sheet pan. As you move the bacon slices, some of the sugar will fall off. Press any lost sugar mixture back onto the bacon. Bake until the bacon is crisp and candied (and dee-licious)--about 15-20 mins.
