Bacon with Sriracha and Brown Sugar

“Life expectancy would grow by leaps and bounds if green vegetables smelled as good as bacon.” That quote comes from Olympic Gold Medalist Doug Larson (1902-1981).

While Scott Hutcheson might not go that far, he has seen what the power of bacon has done to his wife.

The Hungry Hoosier ~ Bacon with Sriracha and Brown Sugar

Bacon with Sriracha and Brown Sugar

  • 8 strips of bacon (thick cut is best)
  • Sriracha
  • Brown Sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put a baking rack on a baking sheet and arrange the eight strips of bacon on the rack. Squeeze a thin ribbon of Sriracha down the center of each strip of bacon. Use a pastry brush to coat the entire top surface of the bacon with the hot sauce. Sprinkle the top of each piece of bacon with a generous portion of brown sugar. Place in the oven and cook to your desired bacon doneness.  I like mine fairly well done which takes about 25 minutes.
