Maple-Candied Bacon is addictive and very hard to stop eating so watch yourself. Usually bacon tastes best hot but this tastes great at room temperature, or even out of the refrigerator after you thought you put it up.
This is delicious served with the Waffle House Cheese Eggs from yesterday. You’ll have to go there for the hash browns.
