While there’s certainly nothing wrong with traditional bacon, this bacon upgrade is a supremely flavorful way to switch up the Sunday morning staple. Serve the spicy, smoky, slightly sweet bacon alongside eggs, with a Bloody Mary, or crumbled onto dips, salads, or loaded baked potatoes. Because the bacon cooks and crisps in the oven, you don’t have to hover over a skillet or worry about grease splattering. But be warned: the spicy-sweet bacon is slightly addictive. You may wind up making it every time you buy bacon—but if that’s so wrong, we don’t want to be right.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F. Stir together sugar and Taco Seasoning in a bowl. Dredge bacon slices in sugar mixture, pressing to adhere. Arrange bacon in a single layer on a wire rack coated with cooking spray; place rack in an aluminum foil-lined large rimmed baking sheet.

Step 2

Bake until crisp, 40 to 50 minutes.
