  • Servings: 4

Source: Everyday Food, December 2010


  • 8 slices bacon
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. On a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet, arrange bacon in a single layer. Bake until fat is rendered and bacon is beginning to brown, 15 to 18 minutes. Carefully remove from oven and brush with pure maple syrup. Bake until bacon is browned and sticky, 3 to 5 minutes. With tongs, transfer to a wire rack, then set rack on baking sheet and let bacon drain. Serve warm.

Cook's Notes

Rather than frying on the stove-top, this bacon cooks easily in the oven. Refrigerate leftover bacon fat to use in roast vegetables, greens and flavor dressings.

    Love this recipe. But a little unclear. Recommend using very thick bacon, much more maple syrup than recommended, brushing both sides of the bacon and cooking, then flipping to do the other side. Let bacon stand when done and serve just above room temperature with other hot stuff.
