Million Dollar Bacon

10 slices thick cut, hardwood smoked bacon
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp. fresh cracked black pepper (or less)
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper (or less, or none)
2 Tbsp. maple syrup

Place oven rack on center rack. Preheat oven to 350°F.

Combine brown sugar, black pepper, and cayenne pepper in a bowl; set aside.

Cover a 13x9" backing sheet with heavy duty foil. Sprinkle about half of the sugar mixture on the the baking sheet. Place the bacon on the sugar coated backing sheet. Sprinkle the rest of the sugar mixture on top of the bacon and gently rub it in.

Back in the preheated oven on the center rack for 20 minutes, then flip and cook for 15-20 minutes on the other side.

Remove bacon from the oven and place on a cooling rack to dry with a piece of foil underneath the rack. Drizzle the bacon with the maple syrup.

Note: If using regular slice bacon, cut cooking time about in half, or a little longer.
