Caramelized brown sugar adds an irresistible layer of sweetness to crispy bacon. The late chef and food consultant Gene Hovis gave this recipe to Mortimer's in New York City; it was subsequently adopted by that restaurant's successor, Swifty's, and served at cocktail parties both on premises and off.
