Today, for lunch, the younger son (home from college on spring break) made something that he learned to make from the elder son:
Take a pound of thick-cut bacon. Cut it in half to make shorter rashers. Pepper excessively. Toss with 1/3 cup brown sugar.
Take a cookie sheet. Line it with parchment paper. Place bacon in a single layer on the paper. Sprinkle any left-over brown sugar on the rashers. Cover with another layer of parchment paper, then put another cookie sheet on top.
Bake at 325°F for 20 minutes. Take from the oven and allow to cool.
Feel your coronary arteries harden at the mere thought of eating this.
Eat it anyway. Tastes pretty darned good.
