Pig Candy

I know there are a lot of recipes out there for this. This is one I have adapted from a few. Very easy to make. Kinda like Shake N' Bake for bacon
10 slices of bacon (about 1 1/4 lb of thick-cut bacon)
*3/4 teaspoon ground cayenne
1/2 cup light brown sugar

*optional- the heat may not be too kid friendly so omit if you or you kids won't like it.

Preheat oven to 350. Mix the Brown sugar and cayenne pepper in a large zip lock bag, take a slice of bacon and put it in the bag. Close bag and shake it, making cure the bacon get well coated. Repeat until you are done. Place the baking on a boiler pan. (Wht I do here is place two cake cooling racks on a cookie sheet) and place in oven. Cook for 15- 30 minute or until crispy. Remove from oven. While cooling sprinkle bacon with rest of brown sugar-cayenne mixture. Let cool completely. Serve as slices or crumble and serve over vanilla Ice Cream or Maple Ice cream.
