You simply place some strips of bacon on a foil-lined baking sheet, sprinkle with coarsely ground black pepper and brown sugar and bake until the bacon is crisp. The splatters and mess associated with frying bacon in a skillet are eliminated, and you end up with delicious sweet and salty bacon strips that can be served at breakfast or brunch, or cut into small pieces and passed as an hors d’oeuvre.

- 1 tablespoons coarsely ground black pepper
- 1/4 cup light brown sugar
