Ingredients

1 pound thick cut sliced bacon (about 12 pieces)

Red Chile-Honey Glaze:

3/4 cup clover honey

2 tablespoons ancho chile powder 

Sorghum Glaze:

3/4 cup sorghum syrup

Brown Sugar-Pecan Glaze:

3/4 cup packed light brown sugar

1/3 cup finely chopped pecans 

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. For the red chile-honey glaze: Lay the bacon in a single layer on a sheet pan, keeping space in between each slice. Place bacon in pan and bake until lightly browned and crisp, 15 to 20 minutes. While the bacon is cooking, whisk together the clover honey and ancho chile powder in a medium bowl until smooth. Remove the bacon from the oven, using mitts, and carefully drain the fat, tipping the pan, into a medium bowl. Blot the top of the bacon with a few paper towels. Place the sheet pan with the bacon on it on a cooling rack and immediately brush each slice with the glaze.  
  3. For the sorghum glaze: Lay the bacon in a single layer on a sheet pan, keeping space in between each slice. Place bacon in pan and bake until lightly browned and crisp, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove the bacon from the oven, using mitts, and carefully drain the fat, tipping the pan, into a medium bowl. Blot the top of the bacon with a few paper towels. Place the sheet pan with the bacon on it on a cooling rack and immediately brush each slice with the sorghum syrup.  
  4. For the brown sugar-pecan glaze: Line a baking sheet with a silpat or parchment paper. Lay the bacon in a single layer on the baking sheet, keeping space in between each slice. Divide the brown sugar evenly over the top of each slice of bacon and bake until bacon is golden brown and almost crispy, about 13 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with the finely chopped pecans, return to the oven and continue baking until pecans are toasted and bacon is crispy, about 3 minutes longer.  
  5. Let sit at room temperature for 10 minutes.
