To start it off the most amazing Coca-Cola Glazed Bacon Burgers

Ingredients

Servings:
4
1 ½ Cup packed brown sugar
1 Cup Coca-Cola
500g  bacon
8 burger patties
16 Slices of cheese (Your choice)
4 burger buns
Cayenne pepper, to taste

Directions

TOTAL TIME: 1 hr
Prep Time: N/A
Cook Time: 1 hr
In a medium pot, simmer the brown sugar with the Coca-Cola and a pinch of cayenne pepper for approximately 30-45 minutes. Make sure to stir periodically. Simmer until the glaze begins to thicken and then reduce. After the glaze begins to simmer, lightly brush it onto each slice of raw bacon. Cook bacon as you would normally. For maximum flavor, continue to baste the bacon as if cooks. The glaze will thicken up. As the bacon cools, it will become candied-like in texture. Prepare the burgers as your dad likes, and add cheese and optional toppings. If you choose, lightly drizzle any additional Coca-Cola glaze on top.
