Today’s post is going to be short, sweet (and spicy), and right to the point. BACON!! Candied Whiskey Bacon! My absolute favorite easy way to make delicious and unique bacon. Bacon infused with whiskey and brown sugar, then baked in the oven until it’s crispy and incredibly addictive. No turning required and made in minutes. How much better can bacon get? Sounds good, yes?!Oven Baked Candied Whiskey Bacon is the BEST bacon recipe for breakfast, sandwiches, salads, and everything in between! Baked in the oven! BEST BACON EVER!

This candied bacon has the right amount of sweetness, with a tiny punch of spicy. It’s perfect for breakfast sandwiches, GRILLED CHEESE DIPPERS (click HERE for the recipe), salads, and everything in between. Consider yourselves addicted!

I’m guessing that this bacon isn’t going to bring world peace or anything, but if you ask me, it’s a great start. I bet it would be amazing on this BLT Esquites sandwich, or a BLT pizza!

Ingredients

  • 12 strips of Wright Brand Bacon
  • 1 cup whiskey or bourbon
  • 1 1/4 cup dark brown sugar divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Mix together your whiskey with 1 cup brown sugar and cayenne pepper in a small saucepan over medium/high heat. Stir to combine. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Place each strip of bacon directly on a baking sheet, allowing a bit of space between strips. Brush the bacon with the whiskey reduction and then sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup brown sugar.
  4. Place bacon in the oven and cook for 20 minutes, checking after 12 minutes. Ovens vary, so you want to make sure they don't burn. Mine took the full 20 minutes.
  5. Take bacon out of the oven and allow to sit on a paper towel to cool/drain.
  6. Serve and enjoy!

This is revolutionary! I always dip my bacon in a little maple syrup, but I bet baking the sweet flavor right in is even better!
