Spring Break is here and that means it is time to relax, have fun and EAT…& I say lets eat some bacon!! There is just something so indulgent about bacon that makes you feel like your doing something a little naughty…and trust me this sweet & spicy version is a keeper for sure!!
In my house plain bacon is special… but this version takes it to a whole new level.
The trick to this bacon is baking it…do you normally bake it? I started baking mine a while ago…not only does it make perfectly crisp, but still tender & it is so much LESS messy. There is no bacon grease spattering up to burn you and you can let it bake while you work on something else such as eggs or gravy, making breakfast a breeze and so YUMMY!
For this recipe I sprinkled it with a spice combo that is a little sweet with a little heat making for a perfect piece of bacon. I love how the brown sugar caramelizes on the edges giving you a little sticky bite paired with a little heat that will make your tastebuds do a dance.
