Easy Candied Bacon Recipe

Crispy, sweet, and salty describe candied bacon! You should double this recipe because it is so tasty and simple to make that you won’t run out.
This is a simple recipe that you may use as a guide and modify for other dishes. Or you could simply eat it that way; it goes well with beer. This is a great way to give your food some crunch.

A common household favorite is candied bacon. We all adore the seasoning, and even without the added fat, it crisps up nicely. For this reason, you bake it rather than cook it.
It is perfectly flavorful, salty, and sweet for my tastes. With the addition of paprika and cinnamon, the balance of those flavors is exceptionally wonderful.
The best part, though, is that this recipe only calls for a few fundamental ingredients. Only the strips, sugar, and flavorings are required.
The aroma would fill the entire house while it cooked in the oven. The most difficult thing is actually controlling your cravings.
This is something you can create in large quantities, and it is what I advise. Everyone would desire more than piece.

  • 12 slices bacon (not thick-cut)
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika (smoked is great)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Place one rack in the top third and another rack in the bottom third of the oven.
  • Line two medium baking sheets with foil, and place an oven-safe wire rack onto each.
  • Arrange the bacon slices onto the wire racks, perpendicular to the lines and making sure they don’t overlap.
  • In a small bowl combine sugar, paprika, pepper, and cinnamon.
  • Sprinkle the bacon strips with the brown sugar mixture, about 1 teaspoon per bacon strip, spreading it so the whole strip is covered.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, rotating the pans once mid baking.
  • Start checking on the bacon about after 17-18 minutes, as some slices may cook faster.
  • The bacon is done when it has a deep brown color and the brown sugar mixture is melted. It will continue to crisp up as it cools.
  • Once done, let the bacon cool on the wire rack for as the melted sugar hardens.
  • Transfer to a plate and serve.
