Beer Candied Bacon
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Whisk together beer and 1/2 c brown sugar in a bowl
  3. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil, and place an over safe wire cooling rack on top. Place the pieces of bacon on top of the rack, overlapping them if needed.
  4. Place bacon in the oven and cook for 10 minutes
  5. Using a pastry brush, brush one side of the bacon with the sugar and beer mixture then flip it and coat the other side with the syrup as well and return to the oven for 10 minutes.
  6. Repeat the process until the bacon is crispy and browned and you have used all the glaze.
  7. Cool on a wire rack at least one hour before serving.
Recipe Notes

If you want the bacon to caramelize faster sprinkle brown sugar directly onto the bacon before placing back into the oven. Do NOT place the bacon on a paper towel to cool, that stuff is sticky and you will end up with paper towel glued to your bacon.
