Cranberry-Glazed Back Bacon

This looks special and tastes even better.

2 lbs. back bacon
2 tbsp. butter
1/2 C chopped onion
2/3 C ketchup, tomato sauce, or chili sauce

1-1/2 C cranberries
1/2 C packed brown sugar
2 tbsp. vinegar
1 tsp. dry mustard

Bake the bacon on a rack at 375F for 45 minutes, or until tender. Meanwhile, in a skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the onion and cook until soft but not brown. Stir in ketchup, cranberries, brown sugar, vinegar, and mustard. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes. Spoon sauce over the bacon and bake 30 minutes longer, basting a few times.
