  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet with aluminum foil for easier clean up. Place an oven-safe rack over the baking sheet.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the brown sugar substitute, rice vinegar, sugar free maple syrup, and black pepper (if using).
  • Place bacon on the rack. Cook for 10 minutes. Using tongs, carefully flip the slices, and bake for an additional 10 minutes.
  • Remove the bacon from the oven and flip again. Brush the top with the brown sugar mixture. Return bacon to the oven and bake for another 5 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and brush again with the “brown sugar syrup”. Repeat flipping and basting every 5 minutes until bacon is browned and crisp, about 30 to 35 minutes total.
