1 1/2 cups (packed) golden brown sugar
1 pound bacon (I like to use thick-sliced)
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheet (with sides) with parchment paper. Place bacon on cookie sheet. Sprinkle sugar evenly over bacon strips. Bake bacon until dark golden brown, , about 15 minutes. Using tongs, transfer to rack and cool. (Can be prepared 4 hours ahead. Store in airtight container at room temperature.) Serve at room temperature.
