    This was very good and formed a nice glaze to the bacon but did not get to a crust which I thought would happen as the photo appears to have one. Things I did different. Doubled the recipe to use whole 12 oz. package of center cut bacon as that is what I had at the time. Added a dash of smoke flavor because I did not have hickory bacon. I also warmed sugar topping in microwave for 20 seconds so it would be easier to brush on. Next time I think I wll cook bacon half way then add sugar coating, it may stick to it better and have a more pronounced flavor. This would also be very good wrapped in scallops. Cut bacon wrap raw scallop secure with toothpick bake half way then brush with sugar coating. YUM!

    I made this for a party last night and everyone loved it....also, they all wanted the recipe. I told them about the many delicious sounding recipes in the Spring 2013 magazine and that I plan to try most of them. Thanks for the great bacon appetizer recipe.
