Did Someone Say Bacon ?

Originally found on the Land O'Lakes wesite:

I found this recipe for carmelized bacon and thought.." Oh Hell yeah..with SU's home made buttermilk pancakes...!

Yatzee !

Carmelized Bacon:

1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 lb. ( 8 slices) bacon

Heat oven to 450 degrees.
Line a broiler pan with aluminum foil and spray lightly with cooking spray ( Pam)
Mix brown sugan and cinnamon in a bowl and coat the bacon.
Place coated bacon on prepared pan and bake 12 to 15 minutes until well browned .

First..8 slices..mwahahaha.
Cook the whole pound, just double up on the sugar and cinnamon , you know you're gonna want more.
Secondly: Well browned ?
Really ?

What is it with people and bacon ?
You don't cook a ham until it's a charcoal briquette , do you ?
You don't fry a ham steak until it resembles shoe leather, do you ?

What is it with people who have to cook bacon until it's damn near burned ?

Cook the bacon till it's where you usually go " It's done, hands off , that piece is mine ! "

Rant over.

I have made this. Yes, dear, you DO want to make it, too. (I did mine at a lower temp, though. 350-375.)

And hell yes on not overcooking bacon. We do want color on it. Color = flavor. But for heaven sake, it should still have chew to it, not shatter in your mouth! It's bacon, not a chip! Here endeth the sympathy rantlette.
