What’s the saying bacon makes everything better? Well, brown sugar on bacon makes bacon even better. Wow, this recipe was so incredibly good and simple. The men in my life are somewhat bacon connoisseurs, I love bacon, too, but it doesn’t love my thighs so much, so I try to stay away from it on the most part.
Except for when you rub sugar on thick cut bacon. Wow-sers is it good. I couldn’t stay away. My brother introduced this gem of a recipe to me. He said it was really good and sweet and perfection on bacon. Boy was he right!
Let me show you how.
