“I made Boomette's recipe for Spicy Candied Bacon(#438987) using vegetarian bacon and was blown away by how good it was! I used Morningstar but you could use this recipe with any vegetarian bacon. Enjoy, I sure did. If I had made the whole package, I would have eaten it all. I quartered the recipe and it worked great, coating the bacon nicely. I haven't tried the whole recipe, so you might want to use more or less spice mix to your desired amount of coating. Thank you for the inspiration Boomette!”
12 slices veggie bacon

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Set your oven at 300*F.
  2. Mix the chili powder and brown sugar in a bowl, stirring to mix completely.
  3. Place parchment paper on a baking sheet or spray sheet pan with cooking spray.
  4. Coat both sides of the bacon well with spice mix. I patted it on.
  5. Lay the coated bacon on the parchment paper.
  6. Bake 10-15 minutes(start with 10 minutes, but you may need a few more minutes, depending on what veggie bacon you use). Remove immediately to a plate. My bacon stuck to the paper when I left it to cool and I had to heat it up to unstick it from the paper. The bacon will crisp up as it cools.
  7. Enjoy!
