Spicy Brown Sugar–Glazed Bacon
Our bacon is amazing on its own, but a sprinkling of brown sugar and chile powder makes it irresistible—like spicy bacon candy! Use a hot red chile powder if you like to feel the burn; ancho chile powder will give you a more mellow heat. We love cooking bacon in the oven—you can cook a lot at once, and if you line your baking sheet with aluminum foil, cleanup is a snap.
