8-10slicesbacon(or as many slices as you can fit on your wire rack without overlapping)
½cuppacked light brown sugar
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Place a wire rack on top of the baking sheet and spray the rack generously with cooking spray.
Place the brown sugar in a shallow dish. Working with one piece at a time, dredge the bacon in the sugar, pressing to make sure that both sides are evenly coated. Place bacon in a single layer on the wire rack.
Bake until the bacon is crispy, about 20-25 minutes. Let the bacon cool on the wire racks for a few minutes. It will continue to crisp up as it cools. Serve warm or at room temperature.
Store leftover candied bacon in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
