The Perfect Sunday Bacon

Elevate your bacon on Sunday mornings or any day of the week! This bacon isn't just for breakfast but can be made for sandwiches too...BLTA anyone?! Yum!

You will need: 

parchment paper

baking sheet 

6 slices thick sliced bacon (I use Wright's Applewood Smoked) 

1 teaspoon course or butcher black pepper

1 teaspoon brown sugar (I used dark but you can use light)

Note: Do NOT preheat your oven. You will want to start in a cold oven to render the fat out slowly for the PERFECT bacon.  

Let's get started! 

parchment lined baking sheet

1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. Place bacon on baking sheet making sure they do not touch or overlap. If you are using more than 6-8 slices of bacon, use a separate baking sheet. 

mix together brown sugar and black pepper

3. In a small ramekin mix black pepper and brown sugar together. 

sprinkle bacon with black pepper and brown sugar mix   spread spice mixture over bacon with the spoon or finger

4. Sprinkle black pepper and sugar mixture over each slice of bacon evenly. Spread and press into bacon with spoon or fingers. 

place in cold oven on bottom rack. Heat oven to 375.

5. Place bacon in cold oven and heat to 375 degrees. Let cook on the preheat cycle or 15 minutes. (My oven's preheat to 375 is 15 mins) 

after preheat. move bacon to top shelf for 17 mins. checking after 12 mins for desired doneness.

6. After the preheat cycle finishes, move the bacon to the top rack and bake for 12 mins. Check for desired crispiness and cook for increments of 5 mins until you reach your desired crisp. I baked mine for 17 mins total. 

bacon after 17 mins. let cool slighlty   

7. Allow bacon too cool slightly on the sheet and then serve immediately. Enjoy!
