candied bacon is basically the best food ever! it takes a little time but is totally worth it
bacon, candied bacon
center cut thick cut bacon
packed light brown sugar
Preheat the oven to 350
Place a cooling rack in side a jelly roll pan (I put a silicone mat underneath to make clean up easier)
Then lay out your bacon flat over the top (You can put them super close but NOT overlapping).
Place it in the oven for 10 mins, then flip the bacon and cook another 5 mins.
While that's cooking mix the brown sugar, maple syrup and rice vinegar.
Pull out the bacon and brush the sugar coating onto it, then cook another 5 mins.
Every 5 mins flip the bacon and brush on more coating.
This took me anywhere from 8-10 flips, its slow coming up to cooked, but then it goes from perfect to burnt fast.
It will still be SOFT when it's done, so don't keep cooking until it's crunchy or it will BURN.
Go by looks, it will shrink a bit, the red will get dark, the edges will get crunchy.
Leave them to cool and they will harden up!
Serve by itself, in cupcakes, on top of ice cream or anywhere your brave enough to try
