Bacon is one of those foods that’s pretty much perfect if you ask me. It just goes so well with so many other things, offering up an irresistible mix of salty and fatty that just gets my mouth watering every time. I love this recipe for maple glazed candied bacon in the oven because it has that balance of salty and sweet which I can’t seem to get enough!
The recipe takes one of my favorite ways to cook my bacon (in the oven on a baking sheet that has been lined with foil), and mixes in a yummy serving of maple syrup to give the bacon that oh so delicious maple flavor.
You’ll first want to bake the bacon for approximately 15 minutes at 375°F, then carefully remove it from the oven and brush it with three tablespoons of pure maple syrup. Throw it back in the oven for a few minutes, just long enough until the bacon is browned and sticky. Trust me folks… you’re going to want to try this one right away.
