Brown Sugar Sriracha Bacon Bites

 

Brown Sugar Sriracha Bacon Bites

Two words: bacon candy.

  • ¼ cup Sriracha chili sauce
  • ¼ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 10 thick-cut bacon slices, each cut into 4 pieces
  • 1½ tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
  • 1½ tablespoons black sesame seeds
  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Stir together the Sriracha and brown sugar in a medium bowl; add the bacon pieces, and toss to coat. Set aside.

  2. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil; place a wire rack over the foil. Spray the rack liberally with cooking spray. Place the bacon pieces in a single layer on the rack.

  3. Bake the bacon until almost crisp, about 45 minutes. During the last 5 minutes, sprinkle the bacon evenly with the toasted sesame seeds and black sesame seeds.

  4. Remove from the oven, and cool for 5 to 8 minutes, moving the bacon pieces slightly on the rack every 2 minutes to prevent sticking. (The bacon will crisp more as it cools.)
