Making Light provides the recipe for a real catch:
Take a pound of thick-cut bacon. Cut it in half to make shorter rashers. Pepper excessively. Toss with 1/3 cup brown sugar.
Take a cookie sheet. Line it with parchment paper. Place bacon in a single layer on the paper. Sprinkle any left-over brown sugar on the rashers. Cover with another layer of parchment paper, then put another cookie sheet on top.
Bake at 325°F for 20 minutes. Take from the oven and allow to cool.
Feel your coronary arteries harden at the mere thought of eating this.
Eat it anyway. Tastes pretty darned good.
And for a real stab at the unhealthfulness record, it's an ideal dish to caffeinate; just mix in enough powdered caffeine (available from any good chemical supply house) to provide about an espresso equivalent for each serving....
It's not always easy to find something strongly flavoured enough to overcome caffeine's natural bitterness, but this works a treat.
