Brown Sugar Bourbon Bacon: Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line baking sheet with non-stick tin foil or parchment paper. Lay strips of bacon on lined baking sheet. Use a pastry brush to brush bourbon over slices of bacon, then sprinkle brown sugar evenly over each slice. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until bacon is evenly cooked and crispy. Remove from pan, set on a paper towel, and allow to cool for 10 minutes. Finely chop bacon once cooled.
