Turn raw bacon strips into an addictive like ‘crack’ treat with just 4 ingredients (Page 2 ) | April 2, 2024



Step 1: Preparing the Bacon

  • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.Arrange the bacon strips in a single layer on the lined baking sheet.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes until the bacon is cooked but still pliable. Remove from the oven and let it cool slightly.

Step 2: Creating the Bacon Crack Coating

  • In a bowl, mix together the brown sugar and cayenne pepper until well combined.
  • Spread this sugar mixture evenly on a plate or shallow dish.

Step 3: Coating the Bacon

  • Take each cooked bacon strip and press both sides into the brown sugar and cayenne mixture, ensuring a generous coating.
  • Place the coated bacon strips back on the lined baking sheet.

Step 4: Adding Crunch (Optional)

  • Sprinkle chopped pecans over the coated bacon strips for an extra layer of texture and flavor.

Step 5: Final Baking

  • Return the baking sheet to the oven and bake the coated bacon for an additional 10-15 minutes or until the sugar caramelizes and forms a crispy coating on the bacon.
  • Keep a close eye to prevent burning, especially during the last few minutes of baking.

Step 6: Cooling and Serving

  • Remove the Bacon Crack Bites from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes to allow the caramelized sugar to set.
  • Transfer the crispy, sweet, and spicy Bacon Crack Bites to a serving platter. They are ready to be enjoyed as a delicious snack or appetizer!
