Billionaire’s Spiced Bacon

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cooking Time: 15 minutes

Yield: ½ pound


  • ½ lb. (8 oz.) uncooked bacon
  • 2 Tbsp. (30 mL) Tabasco® Original Red sauce
  • ¾ cup (190 mL) light brown sugar


  • Using a pastry brush coat the bacon in the Tabasco® Original Red sauce on both sides.
  • Put the sugar onto a dish or plate and coat both sides of bacon in sugar, pressing a light layer of sugar into each strip.
  • Lay the sugar-coated bacon out onto an oven-proof grill pan lined with parchment paper and cook in a preheated oven at 425°F for 15 minutes.
  • Turn the bacon halfway through cooking, until browned and the sugar has caramelized. Some dark caramelization is normal.
  • Place the caramelized bacon onto a cooling rack and allow to cool.
