“The Tuck U Inn at Glick Mansion in Atchison, Kansas serves this for breakfast. People just rave about the caramel, candy coating combination on the bacon!”

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and set a wire rack over the foil. Use a baking sheet that has sides to catch the grease.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together the brown sugar, mustard powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cayenne pepper. Press each slice of bacon into the mixture until coated. Twist each strip a few times and place on the prepared baking rack.
  3. Bake until bacon is browned and crisp enough to hold its shape, about 30 minutes.

Wow. This recipe was fantastic! And I overheard everyone at our brunch commenting on the "amazing bacon." :) The only change was to 1/2 the amount of dry mustard powder; this gave it a hint of mustard without overpowering the other flavors. We'll definitely be making this for other get-togethers in the future! ----- Update: The leftover rub from this recipe is out-of-this-world on salmon. Just rub onto salmon filets and then grill til done. It's our new favorite way to eat salmon!

I used thick sliced bacon, so 30 minutes didn't get it crispy, but it didn't matter, I thought these were great. Just the right amount of spice with the cayenne. I used a big baggy to mix the spices in and then threw the bacon in which made it really easy to coat it. Yum! A fun recipe. Thanks!

After cooking this for several years, I have some advice to make it quicker and less messy: 1) Don't worry about twisting the bacon. Cut your packs of bacon in half, shake them in a bag of the brown sugar mixture, and then lay them very tightly packed onto an aluminum foil covered cookie sheet that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. They taste so delicious no one cares if they are twisted or not! 2) Immediately after removing from the oven, put each piece on cookie cooling racks that have been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Don't let them touch! I also put wax paper beneath the racks because that praline mess will drip. Let them cool and set. 3) Just add 1 tsp. of allspice in place of the cinnamon and nutmeg. The clove adds something extra, just like when you stud ham with whole cloves. 4) Use the cheapest bacon you can find and definitely not thick cut. Everyone in my community loves this recipe and it has become the dish that is asked for the most when I attend parties. A friend of mine's son had some serious medical problems lately and he said that Candied Bacon would make him feel better! This bacon cures everything!
