Dark Roast Candied Bacon


Nothing screams breakfast like coffee and bacon, so why not combine the two together? This recipe with bacon coated in brown sugar and Dunkin’ Donuts Rainforest Alliance Certified™ Dark Roast Coffee will combine savory and sweet elements to be the perfect side to your Spicy Omelet Strata!   




  • 1 lb. thick cut bacon
  • 1 Medium DD Dark Roast Coffee
  • 2 Cups brown sugar



1. Preheat oven to 350°F.



2. Place bacon on a sheet pan and bake for 12 minutes until the bacon is cooked but not crispy, and then drain the fat from the pan.

3. In a small sauce pan combine the Dark Roast Coffee and brown sugar and reduce by 1/2 or until thick and syrupy.

4. Take the bacon off the sheet pan, piece by piece, dunking it in the brown sugar and coffee mixture to coat, then place it back on the sheet pan.

5. Place glazed bacon back in the oven and bake for 8 more minutes or until the bacon looks crisp.

6. Remove pan from the oven and using tongs remove the bacon from the sheet pan immediately placing the bacon on parchment paper to cool (if you leave it on the pan it sticks to the pan and that's no fun).
