1 pound of good bacon (less if you want)
1/4 cup of brown sugar, or maple syrup

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Line a sheet pan with tin foil and place a rack in the pan.

Place bacon strips on rack, not touching, you may have to do two cooking. Now you have a choice, either brush the bacon on both side with maple syrup, or sprinkle with brown sugar. I hate decisions, so I brush the bacon with maple syrup and sprinkle a little brown sugar on also. The syrup helps the sugar to stick better, don't overdo either one.

Bake for 10 minute or so and turn bacon, bake for an additional 10 minute or until a nice golden brown. Let cool a little before serving.

If using for a snack, stand the bacon pieces upright in a pretty glass.

COOK'S NOTE: Save that wonderful sweet bacon grease in the bottom of the pan to season your green beans with.
