The only thing better than bacon is bacon caramelized with brown sugar and Crystal Hot Sauce. You can have it for breakfast, dessert, or just eat it by the handful – we’re not here to judge.
Ingredients
 1 lb thick cut bacon
 ½ cup light brown sugar
 1 tbsp chili powder
 ½ tsp cayenne pepper
 2 tsp Crystal Hot Sauce
Directions
1

Preheat oven to 375°F.

2

Combine brown sugar with chili powder and cayenne pepper.

3

Cover baking tray with aluminum foil. Spray rack heavily with non-stick cooking spray.

4

Cut bacon strips in half.

5

Dip bacon in brown sugar mixture and coat well. Spread the bacon over the rack, leaving a little space between the strips, and give them a light dusting with additional sugar and spice. Sprinkle with Crystal Hot Sauce.

6

Bake until the bacon is dark along the edges (start checking at 15 minutes). Make sure the sugar doesn't burn. Remove from oven and let sit for a few minutes.

7

Transfer to another rack or plate for cooling, then serve.
