Directions

1) Line a baking sheet with foil for easier cleanup. In a small bowl stir together brown sugar and sriracha until it forms a paste.

2) Spread out bacon strips on baking sheet and coat each strip with some of the brown sugar paste.

3) Place baking sheet in a cold oven and turn on to 350 degrees F. (Starting the bacon cold will help fat render out slowly).

4) Bake the bacon for about 20 minutes, maybe rotating the pan once halfway through, but never flipping the actual strips.

The finished bacon will be really crispy and almost look burned around the edges. Remove bacon strips and let cool on a few paper towels.

Bacon will crisp up as it cools.
