Maple Sugar Glazed Bacon
Am I the last person in the world to hear about this? I casually mentioned I cooked some bacon in the oven in a thread at another venue and a comment there linked to a Google image search for “candied bacon”. The pictures there made me go straight to Amazon to order some maple sugar.Sprinkle some of the maple sugar (brown sugar also works) on sliced bacon laid on a rack over a foil lined baking tray and pop it into a 400 oven for 15 minutes. Flip the bacon over and sprinkle sugar on the other side and give it another ten minutes or so.This stuff is sweet enough to crumble atop a bowl of ice cream. My brief perusal of the recipes that a “maple sugar” + “bacon” Google search yielded gave me hints of several variations on the basic recipe. Some mentioned a mustard/sugar mix, others spoke highly of cinnamon as an addition, and more yet called for cayenne pepper. I may be busy tomorrow!
