Cardamom Candied Bacon

I think we can all agree that bacon makes everything better. (except maybe those brownies I posted a couple weeks ago). But how do you make bacon better? You candy it. With cardamom. Yep, candied bacon is amazing. And cardamom is one of my favorite spices. I love the citrusy, spicy flavor.

Hubby and I enjoyed this bacon next to eggs for breakfast. I also used this bacon in the Candied Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies that I made recently. And be sure to check back tomorrow for a savory recipe to use this bacon.

Cardamom Candied Bacon

We can all agree that bacon makes everything better. But how do you make bacon better? You candy it. With cardamom.

Yield: 10 slices bacon


10 slices thick-cut bacon
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp ground cardamom


Preheat oven to 375 F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, then lay a wire rack on top of the baking sheet.

On a large plate, mix sugar and cardamom. Dredge bacon slices through the mix, lightly patting the sugar on top but not overdoing it.

Lay strips on wire rack and bake for 20-25 minutes, flipping the bacon once halfway through.

Remove and drain on paper towels for 1 minute.
