Beer-Candied Bacon 

Prep Time: 5 minutes | Cook Time: 30 minutes


  • 1 package bacon
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup dark beer We prefer a stout with a chocolate-y, coffee finish


Preheat oven to 400°F.

Line sheet pan with aluminum foil, lay out bacon strips. Bake for 5 minutes.

Flip bacon, bake for additional 5 minutes. Remove from oven.

Whisk together brown sugar and beer - let foam settle.

Brush brown sugar and beer mixture over each slice of bacon. Be generous!

Repeat steps 5 and 6 again if crispier bacon is preferred.


Depending on how crispy you like your bacon, you can repeat the candying process multiple times until desired taste and crispness is reached.
