Christmas Morning – Caramelized Bacon

The protein in the bacon is what will hold you over until dinnertime. Feel free to substitute healthier turkey bacon here.

Serves 6-8


1 pound sliced bacon

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


Cut each bacon strip in half widthwise. Combine brown sugar and cinnamon. Coat bacon strips in sugar mixture. Place on a foil-lined 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until crisp, turning at the halfway point. Cool slightly and serve.
