This sweet bacon is the perfect party snack and a great sweet and savory treat. Before cooking the bacon, coat each piece with your jam and brown sugar to perfectly complement the intense, salty taste of the meat. Candied bacon should take only thirty minutes to prepare and it’s sure to be a crowd pleaser!

Take 1 pound of cooked bacon strips (I used the microwave ready bacon strips) and brush each lightly with your preserves then sprinkle lightly with brown sugar. Place in the oven and let the magic happen!

    I once made candied maple bacon and quite enjoyed it so I ate the entire batch before it had even cooled. I didn’t feel the best after that so I cured myself of a candied bacon addiction really, really quickly. 😉

    I still want to try this, though! Love it. 🙂

    I am salivating just thinking about this bacon. I’ll bet it would be awesome crumbled over a melted Brie crostini.

    Well, this bacon just made today an 11/10 situation. So much goodness!

    What brand of precooked bacon strip did you use? The ones I previously have tried would not make it past 5 minutes in an oven at 400° without burning as they are so tissue thin. This recipe sounds really good but not so good for my diet. But I can cheat every now and then. Thanks for sharing.

    LOVE Smucker’s jam! And this is probably the most creative way I’ve ever seen jam made into a recipe! Candied bacon – definitely need to try this. Pinning!
