    1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 1/2 cups crisp cooked bacon, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon coarse black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

Mix sugar and syrup in a quart-size microwavable bowl. Microwave sugar and syrup mixture on high for 4 minutes. Add bacon to mixture, stir and microwave for 3 additional minutes. Add butter, vanilla and pepper; stir well. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Add baking soda and stir until foamy. Pour onto heavily greased cookie sheet and allow it to spread on its own. DO NOT SPREAD IT! Let brittle sit out and completely cool, then break it into pieces. Store in airtight containers. Note: Microwave wattages vary. You may need to adjust cooking times.
