We had friends over this morning. I can't do brunch without biscuits. But this was my first time making the brown sugar bacon. It's easy!
Buy thick cut bacon, place on a rack (sprayed first), place over a rimmed baking sheet covered with parchment or foil (I used both), and pat brown sugar all over. Bake at 400° for about 20 - 30 minutes. (I think the shorter time is for regular bacon; mine definitely took 30).
I got the poppyseed bread from a blog I've been reading. I think I cooked mine too long (35 minutes for a 10 inch tube pan) and I forgot to add the powdered sugar on top. But I loved the poppyseed crunch!
