Billionaires Bacon

Skip the heavy holiday hams and roasts. If you’re cruising over the holidays, switch it up. Plan a festive champagne brunch for Christmas morning with this decadent Billionaires Bacon.


1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 lb. bacon
1/2 tsp. pepper


Put sugar onto a plate. Coat both sides of each strip of bacon in sugar, firmly pressing sugar into each strip. Place bacon strips in a single layer on a foil-lined sheet pan (some sugar will fall off). Sprinkle bacon evenly with pepper.

Place pan in preheated 425°F oven or on a grill, turning once until browned and lacquered for about 15 minutes. Transfer to a lightly oiled platter to cool. If bacon is not crisp upon cooling, bake in oven 5-8 minutes more watching closely so the sugar doesn’t burn. Break slices into thirds and serve.
