Maple Balsamic Candied Bacon

1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 Tbsp. Maple Balsamic
Saltwest Naturals Smokehouse Peppercorns, to taste
1 lb. sliced bacon

Preheat oven to 350F. Mix brown sugar, balsamic, and pepper in a small bowl. Place bacon slices on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes. Turn slices and bake another 3-5 minutes. Remove bacon and brush both sides with sugar mixture. Return to oven and bake another 3-5 minutes.

Repeat basting every 3-5 minutes until fat is rendered, sugars are caramelizing and bacon is browned and crisp, about 25 minutes total or to desired doneness.

NOTE: Use whichever flavoured Balsamic you enjoy! This is seriously amazingly good.
