Maple Brown Sugar Bacon

Are you ready for your life to be changed? I know that’s a pretty big statement but it involves bacon so it’s pretty believable. I didn’t think bacon could get any better but when you add a sweet element to salty bacon? Yep. It does. I seem to be on some kind of sweet and salty kick lately. Who am I kidding? Sweet and salty for life.

When I gave up meat for Lent, bacon was by far what I missed most. I even cooked it a few times for my family and it was almost impossible to not eat it. I had a piece in my hand at one point and it was almost to my lips before I even realized what I was doing. It’s second nature to eat a piece while it’s cooking. Am I right?

This bacon is first brushed with a mixture of brown sugar and maple syrup before it’s baked in the oven to crispy perfection.

I’ve never baked bacon before this but had heard good things. It doesn’t make a huge mess, all gets done at the same time and is cooked evenly. I’m definitely sold on the process.

And if you think this bacon is amazing, just wait until you see what I did with it. But that will be revealed on Wednesday. I’m such a tease.
