I have to wonder if Muse tried this recipe before he submitted it, or if there's an error printed because there is no way this bacon will cook in 8 minutes! More like 15 for me and I only used about a fourth of a package! I took half a pound of bacon, cut them in half widthwise, and used half of those. I then decreased the amount of sugar. I also found it easier to coat the bacon slices in a ziploc bag. I highly recommend wrapping your baking sheet with aluminum foil because this gets so sticky and messy.Also, don't cool the bacon on paper towels because I found out the hard way that the bacon will stick to the paper. But in the end this tasted absolutely fantastic. It's very important to let the bacon cool a bit because it will crisp up more.



Great way to serve bacon. I make a change though, instead of cinnamon, we shake on a bit of dry yellow mustard. This gives the bacon a tangy zip that works well with the sugar's sweetness. We use the broiling pan, lining both the inside and outside with foil. Cut a few small slits in the foil on the top pan, so the grease drains to the bottom.



REALLY TASTY, Thank you Muse. I changed things just a little bit. After coating the bacon I twisted it as suggested by another reader. I also cooked the bacon for 10 minutes at 400 instead of the recommended 375. After 5 minutes I turned the bacon over. After cooking,I drained the bacon and then refrigerated (covered and on paper towels). The next day when company came, I zapped the bacon in the microwave to take the chill out. Absolutely wonderful. Thank you
