Sriracha Glazed Bacon

One of the reasons I chose the name The Devilish Dish for my blog is we love spicy stuff around here.  We have two pantries and one of them is FULL of spices and chile powders.  The door of the fridge in our garage is full of nothing but bottles of hot sauce.  So you could say we are spicy food junkies.  We put Sriracha Sauce on just about everything.  If you aren't familiar with Sriracha, it's an Asian chili sauce made from a paste of chile peppers, vinegar, garlic, sugar and salt.  It's named for the coastal city of Si Racha in Thailand.  It's bottle is famously recognizable, with it's trademark rooster and bright green lid.  Don't just limit it spicing up just Asian foods though.  It's great on french fries, scrambled eggs, pizza and just about anything else you can think of!  We love it around here.  Devilish Nephew puts it on EVERYTHING.  And I mean EVERYTHING.  And Mr. DD, he does too.  He loves the sauce so much, he even got Sriracha Socks for Christmas. Now that's some Sriracha Love!  You can only imagine what a big hit this bacon was.  The combination of the spicy sauce with the brown sugar and just a touch of cinnamon was the ultimate pairing with thick, salty bacon.  Whether you serve this with breakfast, make it for the Man Cave Superbowl Snack, or just eat it like candy, I promise it will be a spicy hit!
It's like Spicy, Sweet, Salty Man Candy!
Place the bacon slices on a wire rack.  Brush with
Sriracha Sauce mixture.
Continue glazing and baking on both sides
until crisp.
Sriracha Sauce can be found on the Asian aisle
in most supermarkets.
For breakfast, sandwiches or a snack!
You'll love Sriracha Glazed Bacon so much,
you'll want to wear Sriracha Socks!

Sriracha Glazed Bacon

1 pound thick-cut bacon
1 cup light brown sugar
1 tablespoon (or more if you want really spicy) Sriracha Sauce
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Line a jelly-roll style pan with foil and top with a wire cooling rack and spray well with cooking spray.  Lay the slices of bacon on the wire rack, leaving space in between.  (Don't overlap.)  In a bowl combine the brown sugar, Sriracha sauce and cinnamon.  Microwave the sauce mixture about 15 seconds until it's spreadable.  Brush the mixture onto the bacon slices.  Bake in oven for approximately 13-15 minutes.  Remove pan from oven and flip the bacon slices over.  Brush with sauce mixture.  (You may need to microwave again to keep mixture spreadable.)  Return to the oven and back approximately 13-15 minutes on the other side.  If bacon is not crispy enough, continue brushing with sauce mixture, flipping and baking bacon for a few additional minutes at a time until done.  Allow to cool 1 minute on rack before removing to a plate. 

Prep Time:  Approximately 5 minutes     Cook Time:  Approximately 30 minutes
