This bacon is a special treat for bacon devotees! It was requested often at the inn, and is just so easy to prepare. When this is served, even vegetarians will ask for a slice–bacon has a way of doing that. Be careful not to overcook the bacon, because the brown sugar will turn hard and stick to the teeth when cooled.
2 pounds thick sliced top-quality bacon, (we use smoke applewood bacon)
1/4 cup dijon mustard
3/4 cup brown sugar
Line baking sheet (we use a cookie sheet, with a narrow rim) with aluminum foil, with no splits in the foil. Lay out bacon on the baking sheet (s).
Bake at 350 degrees, until the bacon is approximately half cooked. The fat will still be white.
Remove bacon from oven, and using a basting brush paint each slice of bacon with a light film of dijon mustard. Next sprinkle with your fingers the brown sugar atop the bacon.
Continue baking at 350 degrees for approximately 15-20 more minutes. When cooked to your liking, remove bacon from oven. Drain bacon slices on paper towels. Serve warm, or may be held in warming drawer.
