|Ingredients:||1 cup light brown sugar
2 teaspoons ground cumin seed
2 teaspoons ground coriander
20 slices thick-sliced bacon
4 tablespoons chili powder
2 teaspoons cumin seed
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
|Preparation:||Be sure to position your oven rack in the very center of the oven
and preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Then line two rimmed 15"x11"
baking pans with aluminum foil. Place a cooling rack on the foil on
In a small bowl, combine the sugar, chili powder, ground cumin,
cumin seeds, coriander and cayenne. Spread some of the mixture out
on a piece of wax paper and form into a 12-inch square.
Lay the bacon on the mixture in strips and press down to coat
heavily. Lay strips, barely touching, on the racks over the foil.
Bake one batch at a time for 12 minutes. Turn the bacon over with
tongs and continue baking for another 10 minutes, until the bacon
looks deep brown, but not burned.
Remove from the oven and immediately move the strips to a plate
covered with paper towels.
Do the same with the other pan of bacon. Keep the bacon in a warm
oven until used. If not removed from the racks soon, the bacon will
stick to the rack.
