Candied Bacon

This is a very simple recipe but OMG SO GOOD. If you manage not to eat it all straight out of the oven, try it crumbled in salads. Or on ice cream.
1 package center cut bacon
3/4 cup light brown sugar
Kosher salt to taste

The oven method works best for this treat, simply line a cookie sheet (with sides) with parchment paper or silpat in preparation.

Place bacon on cookie sheet, making sure not to overlap any edges. Lightly sprinkle each piece of bacon with brown sugar (1-1 1/2 tablespoons/each) and place cookie sheet in cold oven.

Set temperature to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and bake 20-25 minutes, keeping an extra careful eye on them starting at the 18 minute mark.

Remove from oven and place cookie sheet on wire rack. Sprinkle kosher salt over bacon pieces. Enjoy!
