Ingredients

  • 1 lb. bacon
  • 1 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Place a wire rack on top of each sheet.
  • Place bacon in a single layer on the two racks. Sprinkle the bacon slices with pepper and then brown sugar.
  • Bake in preheated oven until bacon is crisp and browned, about 15-20 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through for even cooking. Pat dry with paper towels, if necessary. Enjoy!
