  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°F.

Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Spray a wire rack with vegetable spray and place the rack on top of the baking sheet. You will need fifteen to twenty 8-inch metal or wooden skewers (if using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 30 minutes).

Put the brown sugar, granulated sugar, cayenne, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves in a large resealable bag. Shake the bag well to mix the ingredients. Note: I didn't have a plastic bag on hand when I made this recipe, so I just mixed in a medium bowl, then dumped in a shallow pan.

Thread 1 bacon slice onto each skewer like ribbon candy. Don't push the bacon together too closely or the skewers won't cook evenly. Dip each bacon skewer into the plastic bag (or shallow pan) with the sugar mixture, making sure to coat both sides well. Lay each skewer on the prepared wire rack. Sprinkle the skewers with any remaining sugar mixture.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until the bacon is brown and crips, turning the skewers after 12 to 15 minutes. Serve hot.
