At first everyone is skeptical about this recipe. The second you and your guests try it, though, you had better plan on putting more in the oven and copying the recipe because everyone really loves this special treat. This recipe doubles, or triples, easily. Maple sugar can be found at many stores in the baking or breakfast section, but brown sugar can be substituted if desired.
Preheat oven to 350°. Line baking sheet with heavy-duty aluminum foil. Arrange bacon on baking sheet, and bake for 10 minutes. Remove bacon slices to dish and drain off all the fat. Dust bacon with maple sugar (or if preparing large amount of bacon, roll bacon in pie plate filled with sugar). Return to baking sheet and bake until crisp and browned, about 10 minutes longer. Cool on wire rack for about 5 minutes, but serve warm.
