A little bit sweet and a little bit spicy, these Brown Sugar Sriracha Bacon Bites are the easiest appetizer recipe. Plus, they’ll disappear fast because they are so popular!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup Sriracha chili sauce
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 10 thick-cut bacon slices, each cut into 4 pieces
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 325ºF. Line 2 baking sheets with foil, then place a cooling rack on top. Spray generously with nonstick cooking spray.

Combine the Sriracha and the brown sugar in a medium bowl. Add the bacon and stir to coat each of the pieces in the mixture.  Place the bacon pieces on the prepared baking sheets in a single layer.

Bake the bacon until almost crisp, 30-45 minutes. During the last 5 minutes, sprinkle the sesame seeds evenly over the bacon.

Remove from the oven. Cool for 5-8 minutes, moving the pieces every couple minutes to prevent them from sticking to the rack.

The bacon will crisp more as it cools.
