Recipe Notes

Whiskey Candied Bacon


10 slices bacon

1/2 cup Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey (or whiskey of your choice)

1 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil and coat with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a small saucepan, bring ½ cup Jack Daniel's to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, and simmer until reduced to 2 tablespoons. Remove from heat. On a plate, combine brown sugar and cayenne. Dip bacon into Jack Daniels and then press each side into brown sugar mixture to coat. Place on prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake for 7 minutes, then flip and bake for about 5 minutes. Watch the bacon so it doesn't burn!! (The sugar will run all over the pan, and the bacon with have a shiny lacquered look.)
  4. Remove the bacon to a plate coated with non-stick cooking spray to cool completely. Chop bacon; set aside.
