    Mine took exactly 20 minutes but it was pretty thin bacon.
  • Let the bacon cool on the rack for 5 minutes to allow the sugar to harden.

Notes

Your bacon may need longer if it's thicker. Mine was pretty thin and 20 minutes seemed to be the sweet spot. You'll want to start checking the bacon after about 15 minutes of cooking.
