Bacon strips in a cast iron pan.
Ridiculously Good Bacon Is Just One Simple Step Away
By S. Ferrari
It may seem hard to fathom that bacon could get any better, but believe it or not, brushing some sugar on your pork strips can take them to another stratosphere.
By glazing your bacon, you get an irresistible sweetness from the sugar you choose — keep it simple with a sprinkle of brown sugar or try maple syrup, molasses, or honey.
The sugars you add to your bacon caramelize in the oven, creating a non-enzymatic reaction that produces a nutty, deep flavor and a rich, brown hue.
The result is a major boost of flavor that will stick well to your bacon slices and a sweet coating that ensures your bacon retains its juices and develops an exterior crisp.
