Ingredients

  • 12 bacon strips
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Place bacon in a single layer in a foil-lined 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Bake until lightly browned, 16-18 minutes.
  2. Remove bacon from pan. Discard drippings from pan; wipe clean if necessary.
  3. In a shallow bowl, mix remaining ingredients. Dip both sides of bacon in brown sugar mixture, patting to help coating adhere; return to pan.
  4. Bake until caramelized, 8-10 minutes longer. Remove immediately from pan.
