12 strips bacon
3 tablespoons brown sugar
Freshly ground black pepper
Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F.
Line up strips of bacon on a sheet of waxed paper or parchment. Sprinkle half the sugar over top of bacon. Dust bacon with pepper to taste. With your fingers, rub in sugar and pepper. Turn bacon strips over and sprinkle the other side with remaining sugar and pepper to taste, rubbing it in.
Have a broiler pan with a slotted top or a rack set over a baking pan ready. Transfer the bacon strips to it, twisting each piece into a corkscrew as you place it. Place strips close together but do not touch. Bake until bacon is golden brown and crisp, turning with tongs about half way through, about 15 to 20 minutes.
