I have used this many times and everyone loves it! An easy clean-up tip.. Put about 1" of water in the broiler pan and clean up is a breeze, just por out water and rinse off, no scubbing!

This recipe as written for me was no good. I should have omitted the flour. I followed the directions to a T and what I got was bacon lightly coated in flour with no sweetness whatsoever. I'm sure this is a good recipe w/o flour because I've had bacon with brown sugar wrapped around little smokies and that was awesome.

We make this bacon, but haven't ever used the flour...just sprinkle on the brown sugar and pepper. I love that you cook this in the oven. It's so much easier that way! (Spread a piece of foil on the cooking sheet for even easier clean up!)

oh yeah...bacon that is sublime! turns "ordinary" bacon into extraordinary, special bacon into spectacular!If you are in the Adirondacks, get thyself over to Oscar's Smokehouse, grab some of their thick cut bacon (ANY flavor!) and try this...tears of joy will spring to your eyes! Thank you!

Yummy! 2nd time added 2T chili powder, 1 tsp ground cumin, 1 tsp ground coriander, and 1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper, only 1/2 tsp of black. Sweet and Spicy!

This is heavenly. A family favorite. Just make sure to do a couple of pounds. I have a gas oven so it cooked it perfectly on 350 for about 30 minutes or more. I put the bacon on parchment paper too which works great.

Now this was fun; it's so bad for us but it tastes very good. I actually cooked it at a lower temperature to cook along with another dish, 350F for 35 minutes or so. It came out nice and crisp, the bacon kept its shape pretty well. As another reviewer said, I used aluminum foil in my baking pan to save clean up. We'll have this again, I'm sure, but not often. It'll be more of a special, rare breakfast treat.

The bacon turned out nice and crisp. It was just a little bit sweeter than I would have preferred so next time I'll use a little less brown sugar. Loved the baking in the oven idea. Thanks!
