Another Martha Stewart Everyday Food recipe. I'm not even a big fan of bacon, really, but I like this recipe. I usually cook a batch and then freeze what I don't eat. I also like this on BLT's.
16 slices of bacon (about 1 pound)
1 ½ teaspoons ground pepper
1/3 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two 10-by-15-inch rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper; place a wire rack on top of each sheet. Arrange in a single layer on the two racks. Evenly sprinkle with the pepper and the brown sugar. Bake until bacon is crisp and browned, rotating sheets halfway through, 30 to 35 minutes. Pat dry with paper towels.
