Step 1: What You Will Need
Dark drown sugar
Crushed red pepper
First lay the bacon out flat on a nonstick mat. I use a Silpat mat I got a Bed Bath and Beyond a few years ago. You will also need a baking sheet with a bit of a lip to it so the bacon grease does not spill out.
Step 2: Preparing the Bacon
Coat the bacon in a layer of dark brown sugar, just enough to cover it.
Then lightly sprinkle on the cayenne pepper over the brown sugar coating, how much you use is up to you.
Finally sprinkle on the red pepper flakes, again the quantity is up to you.
Now you will want he bacon to sit for about 30 minutes before it goes into the oven.
Preheat the oven to 215ºF and bake for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until the brown sugar is mostly melted and the bacon is starting to crinkle.
After it is cooked let if cool for about 15 minutes then peel it off the the silpat in strips and lay on a plate to let it cool.
