Clinton Kelly's Candied Bacon
  • For the Candied Bacon:
  • 1 pound Thick Cut Bacon
  • 1/2 cup Dark Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Maple Syrup
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon Mustard
  • 2 teaspoons Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1/8 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper (or more to taste)
  • Salt and freshly cracked Black Pepper
To Serve:
  • For the Candied Bacon: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with a silicon mat or foil and place a cooling rack on top.
  • Stir together the dark brown sugar, maple syrup, cayenne pepper, Dijon mustard and apple cider vinegar. Add freshly cracked pepper (about 10 turns) and a pinch of salt.
  • Add half the mixture to a baking dish and reserve the other half in a bowl. Lay the bacon, piece by piece, in the baking dish, coating both sides, then transfer to the cooling rack. 
  • Lay the bacon in a single row on the rack. Place in the oven and let cook. After 15 minutes begin basting every 5 minutes until crispy, about 25 to 30 minutes total.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool on the rack for 5 minutes. Remove from the rack (or they will stick) and use, either whole or crumbled.
  • Serve with Frisee Salad or Ice Cream.
