  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1/2 cup chopped or whole pecans
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 pound thick-sliced bacon


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a jelly roll pan with foil and place a baking rack on top. Set aside.
  2. Add brown sugar and pecans to the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until pecans are finely chopped. Add cayenne pepper and pulse again. Add maple syrup and pulse until just combined.
  3. Cut bacon in half cross-wise and place on top of rack. Be certain that the slices do not touch each other. Use a spoon to divide the pecan-brown sugar mixture evenly among the slices of bacon.
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until tops are browned but not burned. Remove from oven and place on a paper towel lined plate.
  5. Serve at room temperature.
