Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

I listened to the previous reviewer and used thick bacon and did both sides! 15 min initial cooking and then 4 min a side after brushing with the maple syrup. Also added a little brown sugar to the maple syrup and it was fantastic. You definitely need to let them dry a little on the rack so they crisp up.

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.
