Serve this on Christmas morning, as an appetizer, crumbled on top of green beans or in a Candied Bacon Apple Pie.
16 thick slices bacon, about 1 pound
2 tablespoons five-spice powder
4 tablespoons powdered sugar
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Carefully separate slices of bacon. In a small bowl, mix five-spice powder and powdered sugar. Sprinkle each slice lightly with mixture. Place on a large rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, then pour off fat. Bake for about 10 minutes longer, or until crisp. Remove from oven and let sit for 1 to 2 minutes before serving.
Makes 16 slices.
