Once you bite into Billionaire Bacon, you’ll be seeing dollar signs! This simple yet irresistible snack manages to improve upon bacon, which is already an amazingly fatty and salty treat. The secret comes from coating each slice in smoky-sweet brown sugar, warming red pepper, and black pepper playfulness, all of which add new dimensions to the bacon’s savory scrumptiousness. Baked to perfect crispiness, Billionaire Bacon is a wealth of flavors that make you feel better than a million bucks… a million times better, in fact!
