- Step 1
- Preheat convection to 350° F. Line a full sheet pan with aluminum foil and place a wire baking rack on top. Combine the brown sugar, almonds, molasses and seasonings in a food processor and process until the texture of a course cornmeal. Lay the bacon on the rack in a single layer and sprinkle the topping evenly over the bacon. Cover the tray with a full sized silpat mat. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until the topping is very browned but not burnt. If it’s underbaked, the bacon won’t crisp as it cools. While it’s hot, transfer the bacon to a plate lined with paper towels and set aside to cool. Serve at room temperature.
