Spicy Praline Bacon

Bake up a plateful of Spicy Praline Bacon and you and your tastebuds are in for some darn amazing sweet-and-spicy bacon yumminess!

Spicy Praline Bacon

When I had the amazing opportunity to cook with Sister Schubert  at her home back in November, one of my favorite things she served was wonderfully sweet-and-smokey Spicy Praline Bacon.  Smothered in spicy sugar, sprinkled with pecans, and baked to crispy perfection ...
... I just absolutely had to recreate it at home and share it with you.

Spicy Praline Bacon gets its sweetness and spiciness from a layer of brown sugar and chili powder that's sprinkled on part way through baking.  I added a touch of cayenne and black pepper to amp up the spiciness {I love spicy food!} ... but the spices can certainly be adjusted according to your personal taste.

After layering on the sugar-spice mixture, the Spicy Praline Bacon gets a good sprinkling of chopped pecans.  It wouldn't be praline without pecans!

Now I kid you not ... when I was writing the name of this dish the other day, I actually wrote 'praline bacine' by mistake.  It's got kind of a nice ring to it, don't you think??  Praline bacine.  I cracked up when I realized what I'd done.

Serve up a little platter of Spicy Praline Bacon as the perfect party pick-up to impress your guests {and their tastebuds}, or serve it alongside waffles or pancakes for an extra-special breakfast or brunch {or breakfast-for-dinner!} bacon treat.

Whether you call it Spicy Praline Bacine ... or, as it should be known, Spicy Praline Bacon ... all your tastebuds will know and care about is that it's some darn amazing sweet-and-spicy bacon yumminess.

Prep time: 10 MCook time: 18 MTotal time: 28 M


  • 1 lb. thick-cut bacon
  • 1/4 c. light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/8 tsp. black pepper
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 c. finely chopped pecans


  1. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, chili powder, black pepper, and cayenne. Stir until well mixed.
  2. Arrange bacon in a single layer on a broiling pan or a rack set in a jelly roll pan {line inside of the broiler pan or the jelly roll pan with aluminum foil}. Bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes.
  3. Remove pan from oven and sprinkle bacon slices with brown sugar mixture and then with pecans.
