Thank you to Farmland for sponsoring this Candied Bacon Recipe. All opinions are my own.
We are always asking Santa for items for Christmas. Has anyone asked Santa what he wants for while traveling around the world delivering presents?
We assume he wants milk and cookies, but after seeing the video below, Santa wants Bacon! I was going to make Santa some cookies this year, but now we will be leaving him some candied bacon!
Before I get to the recipe, you need to know about Farmland’s fight against hunger. They need your help!
This year, Farmland and Kansas City Royals legend Mike Sweeney are teaming up to fight hunger in the Kansas City Area. From now until December 24, 2015, Farmland will donate one pound of protein to Harvesters (up to 25,000 pounds total) for every social media share that includes a special hashtag.
So, you all need to do is take to social media and tell the world that Santa wants some mouthwatering bacon! Make sure you include #BaconForSanta in your social media share so it will count towards the donation. Find more information on Farmland’s website.
This candied bacon recipe is SO easy to make. You only need some Farmland bacon and brown sugar. I know Santa is going to love this bacon. My youngest son couldn’t stay out of it!

Candied Bacon Recipe
Yield 6 slices of candied bacon
Deliciously sweet candied bacon.
- 6 slices of Farmland Bacon - I used Honey & Maple flavored
- 1/3 cup of packed brown sugar
- Line a sided cookie sheet with parchment paper.
- Put the brown sugar into a large bowl.
- Taking a slice of bacon at a time, toss the bacon in the brown sugar.
- Then place the bacon on the cookie sheet.
- If you have any brown sugar left, sprinkle it on the bacon.
- Put in the oven at 325 degrees for 20 mins.
- Check on your bacon. If it isn't crisp and golden brown, cook for about 10 more minutes. You will not want the bacon to be completely crisp when you pull it out of the oven. It will finish crisping when you pull it out of the oven.
If you have a wire rack that can go into the oven, I suggest using it. You would place the parchment paper on the cookie sheet and then the wire rack. Laying the bacon on the rack would allow the drippings to fall away from the bacon. I didn't have a rack and they still were very tasty!
This candied bacon recipe is perfect to make for holiday parties as well. I would suggest making them the same day as your gathering. Store them at room temperature in an air tight container.
