  1. *If pepper bacon is not available, add two tablespoons course ground black pepper to sugar mixture.

  2. Preheat oven to 400°F.

  3. Combine all ingredients but bacon in a wide, shallow dish. Dip and press each slice of bacon in sugar mixture on both sides. Lay bacon strips on a large, rimmed baking sheet. Sprinkle additional sugar mixture over the bacon slices in the pan.

  4. Roast the bacon until the fat begins to render, about 6 min. Rotate the pan front-to-back and continue roasting until the bacon is crisp and brown, about 8 to 10 min.

  5. Remove, cool and break or cut bacon into bite-sized pieces. Serve warm or cold with cheese.
