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! Read More

This recipe is good but I tweaked it just a bit!!! I mixed together 2 C Dark Brown Sugar, 1 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper, 1 1/2 tsp. black pepper and 4 tbls. Dijon Mustard. I slathered the mixture on (each slice) 2 lbs. thick sliced bacon and refrigerated it overnight in a gallon sized zip topped plastic bag. The next morning, while the oven pre-heated to 400 degrees, i laid placed parchment on two large cookie sheets and placed a rack on top. I spread the bacon on the racks and baked for 15 minutes; turned each slice over and baked an additional 10 minutes. Read More

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!) Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

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! Read More
