  • 8 slices thick-cut bacon
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar firmly packed
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • orange sugar optional


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  2. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Set a cooling rack on the foil. 

  3. In a shallow bowl, combine the brown sugar and the pumpkin pie spice. 

  4. Dredge the bacon slices on both sides and place on the rack. 

  5. Bake until crisp and the edges are beginning to brown, about 22-25 minutes. 

  6. Let cool for 5 minutes before handling. 

Recipe Notes

Adjust cook time accordingly. Bacon should be caramelized and crisp and stand tall when held vertically. 

For a festive touch, sprinkle orange sugar on the bacon when it comes out of the oven. It will give it a more vibrant orange color and sparkle.
