Glazed Bacon Ingredients
The ingredients used to make this glaze are minimal. Honey and brown sugar are all you need. If you enjoy spice, you can add a few drops of hot sauce to add a little kick to the glaze. You will also need bacon.
So what’s the best bacon for candied or glazed bacon? I recommend using thick-cut bacon to take advantage of this recipe’s added sweetness.
While thinner bacon will also work, thick-cut bacon does better standing up to the sugary glaze.
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon hot sauce (optional)
- 1 pack thick cut bacon
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
- Mix honey, brown sugar, and hot sauce in a bowl to form a glaze.
- Arrange bacon slices in a single layer on a rack over a lined baking sheet. Bake in bacon until 1/2 done.
- Brush 1/2 cooked bacon with the glaze and return to the oven; cook until the bacon is done.
- Allow bacon to cool and serve.
Glazed bacon is a delicious and easy way to make your breakfast or brunch special. The recipe we’ve shared is simple, but you can customize it to your liking by adding different spices or using a different type of sugar.
