I will be honest. The sight of this image around the webs, combined with the fact that while cooking bacon earlier I thought it smelled like cooking ice cream (???) subconsciously inspired me to try sprinkling brown sugar over my strips before cooking them for the first time. The result was some of the best bacon I've had in a very long time, and my sister agreed (my vegan brother-in-law was not available for comment).
Haha welcome to the bacon side! It's hard to come back to normal bacon after having candied bacon. Also, try adding a little maple syrup on it too before you bake it! Makes it even better. Thank you for being a fan and spreading the bacon love!
