Guinness Candied Bacon

Man cannot live on cheese alone.  That is why there is bacon.  And bacon with a sweet booze flavored glaze...perfection.  







Guinness Candied Bacon

1 # thick cut Apple Smoked Bacon
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup Guinness
1/8 tsp cayenne

Line 2 baking sheets with aluminum foil for easy clean up.  Place a wire cooling rack on top of each rack.  Lay out the bacon side by side on the racks.  In a small saucepan, combine the Guinness, dark brown sugar and cayenne.  Heat to almost a boil.  Preheat oven to 350°.  Place bacon in heated oven without glaze for 15 minutes.  Take out of oven and glaze top side and return for another 15 minutes.  Take out, turn bacon, glaze and bake for another 15 minutes.  Let cool completely before removing from the racks.
