This is a sweet and spicy twist on plain bacon, and who doesn’t love crispy bacon? With only 3 ingredients, this Crispy Maple Bacon is quick, easy and will wow your guests when they taste the surprising touch of maple syrup sweetness paired with the spiciness and crunch of our Cairo nut & spice blend.
The first time I tried a bit of sweetness on my traditional bacon I was a bit skeptical, but once I tasted the sweet, smoky, spicy combination I could not get enough.
I like to serve this sweet and spicy bacon to guests as a fun appetizer. Stack the bacon sticks into a pretty silver cup or glass and pass it around for guests to enjoy with their favorite cocktail, beer or glass of wine.
This sweet and spicy bacon is perfect with your traditional favorite breakfast eggs and toast or piled and layered into a BLT sandwich. By adding the sprinkle of Glory Kitchen nut & spice mix and the brush of sweetness from the maple syrup, you’ll find you’ve discovered a delicious new way to elevate your favorite breakfast food.
- Cairo nut & spice mix
- thick sliced bacon
- maple syrup
- Preheat oven to 400°.
- Take the thick cut bacon and lay it out on a wire rack placed over a baking tray lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Elevating the bacon on a rack allows the air to circulate around and creates crispier bacon. Lining the tray with foil allows for a quicker cleanup.
- Place in the lower third of the oven and cook for 10-15 minutes, or until lightly browned.
- Remove from the oven and pat the oil off the bacon strips with a dry paper towel. Using a pastry brush, brush each slice, on the side facing up, with a good amount of maple syrup. Carefully sprinkle each slice with Cairo nut & spice mix then place the baking sheet back into the oven and continue to bake until the slices are nicely browned and crispy. Remove from the oven, allow to cool and serve.
