10 Servings 30 min Cook
1/2 Cup packed Brown Sugar
8 Oz Bacon
Cook bacon in 2 batches in a 12-inch heavy skillet over moderate heat, turning over once, until bacon is lightly browned on edges but still flexible, 5 to 6 minutes total per batch.
Transfer bacon as cooked to paper towels to drain.
Sprinkle sugar over bacon and cook over low heat, turning occasionally with tongs, until sugar is dissolved, caramelized (sugar melts very slowly and burns easily; reduce heat if necessary after sugar begins to caramelize), and coats bacon, 8 to 10 minutes.
(Bacon will be dark and look lacquered.
) Transfer bacon with tongs to brown paper to cool.
