Sweet and Spicy Bacon (aka Crack Bacon)
WARNING: Do not make this recipe if you only want to eat one slice of bacon, if you want to nibble at half a piece out of politeness while you move on to your fruit salad, or if you just want a smack of pork with your morning eggs. You can't help but eat the entire plate of this stuff. Hopefully like me you'll have a number of friends to help (read: protect you from yourself).
Sweet and Spicy Bacon
Adapted from Cafe Pasqual's
1 lb. thick applewood smoked bacon
3/4 c. brown sugar
2 tbs. chili powder
1) Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Line one large or two small baking sheets with foil.
2) Stir the sugar and the chili powder together. One by one, roll the bacon slices in the sugar. Press the sugar on them until they are well coated. Twist a few times into a spiral, then place on the sheets.
3) Bake for 30 minutes (or longer). Be careful not to burn. Serve.
