Maple-Roasted Bacon

We only eat bacon once in a while but when we do we love to prepare it in the oven. Having the bacon roast on a rack so you don’t have to keep turning it in the pan is a time saver for me.

At the end you brush it with maple syrup and the flavor is awesome!

Use thick bacon and a good maple syrup.

Refrigerate leftover bacon fat to use in roast vegetables and to flavor dressings.

  • Place a baking rack on a sheet pan and arrange the bacon in 1 layer on the baking rack.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until the bacon begins to brown.
  • Remove the pan carefully from the oven; there will be hot grease in the pan!
  • Brush the bacon slices with maple syrup and bake for another 3 to 5 minutes, until the bacon is a warm golden brown.
  • Transfer the bacon to a plate lined with paper towels and serve warm.
