Forget about the skillet. Baking your bacons with caramelized brown sugar adds an extra sweetness to the crisp meat. This is hands-down the best bacon recipe you'll ever need.
Makes 8-10 servings.
1 lb bacon
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
Separate strips of bacon and blot dry with paper towels. Put sugar into a wide dish. Coat both sides of bacon in sugar, firmly pressing sugar into each strip. Lay bacon out on sheet pans as coated (some sugar will fall off).
Cook bacon in a preheated 425°F oven, turning once, until browned and lacquered, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a lightly oiled sheet pan to let cool. Break slices into thirds.
