  • 1 package of bacon
  • ¾ cup (135g) brown sugar
  • 1-2 teaspoons (5-10ml) red pepper flakes (2 if you like it really spicy)
  • 1 teaspoon (5ml) paprika
  • 1 teaspoon (5ml) chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon (5ml) cayenne
  • ¼ teaspoon (1.25ml) garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon (1.25ml) onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon (1.25ml) salt
  • ¼ teaspoon (1.25ml) pepper


In a medium bowl, pour all ingredients, except the bacon, together and mix well with a fork.

Take a package of bacon, cut the strips in half, and place them on a foil lined cookie sheet.

Spread the sugar mixture over all the pieces of bacon, making sure to cover every spot.

Bake at 375°F/190.5°C for 20 minutes. The bacon should be crispy, but not burnt. Bake in 2 minute intervals until done to desired crispness - take care because the sugar will start to burn very quickly if left in too long.

Let cool slightly and serve.
