#69 :: Maple Candied Bacon

These were very tasty....almost like candy! And they smell wonderful while they're cooking....it was really hard not to take them out early and eat them!




Ingredients

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

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Line a rimmed 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.

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 an additional 5 to 10 minutes, or until the bacon has reached desired crispiness.

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.
