Maple-Candied Bacon

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.

Recipe is from Food Network

Maple-Candied Bacon

1 pound thick sliced bacon, good quality
1/2 cup maple syrup, Grade B
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
Finely ground black pepper

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with heavy foil.  Place a baking rack over the lined sheet tray and arrange the bacon slices across the rack next to each other, not overlapping.

2. In a small bowl, whisk the maple syrup and mustard.  Generously spoon over the top of the bacon, and bake 12 to 15 minutes.  Turn the bacon over and baste with syrup mixture.  bake and additional 5 to 10 minutes, or until bacon has reached desired crispiness.

3. Carefully remove the pan from the oven.  Sprinkle hot bacon with a scant pinch of finely ground black pepper.  Let the bacon rest on the rack for 5 minutes.

  1. AW MAN! I made the cheesy “Waffle House” eggs last night and I didn’t have this to make with it! Next time!

  2. Bacon Rules WFDT! And Maple Bacon rules the most! Can’t wait to try this!

  3. This is something new for me but it looks delicious. Who would have thought bacon and syrup could actually go well together. Thanks for this.

    • Arnold,
      I agree, who knew about bacon and syrup? It’s so easy too since you just stick it in the oven to bake. I’m ready for brunch!

  4. This looks very addictive indeed. I have to make this. Love the colour. Thanks for sharing.

    • I hope you try it. I really have eaten it out of the refrigerator and normally I would not be tempted. My favorite bacon to use is Burgers Smokehouse Old Fashioned Bacon and you can get it at Publix.
