Since trying the various bacons—spicy, chocolate, candied, lavender, among others—made by a wonderful Charlottesville, Virginia, restaurant, I haven’t been able to eat bacon straight up since. This is my all-time favorite recipe for kicking breakfast bacon up a notch.
1 pound uncured center-cut bacon (as thick-cut as you can get)
2 pinches cayenne pepper
2 pinches onion powder
2 pinches dried thyme
2 pinches coconut sugar
Pinch smoked paprika
Pinch ground ginger
Pinch ground allspice
Pinch ground nutmeg
Pinch ground cinnamon
Pinch garlic powder
Pinch coarsely ground black pepper
Pinch red pepper flakes
Directions Preparing:5 minCooking:20 min
Step 1Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Step 2Line two rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper.
Step 3Place the bacon strips in a single layer on the sheets.
Step 4In a small bowl, mix all the seasonings. Sprinkle this mixture over the bacon strips.
Step 5Bake the bacon to your desired crispiness, 15 to 20 minutes (no need to flip the bacon mid bake).
Step 6Remove the bacon from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before serving.
