Bacon! Bacon! Bacon!

That’s pretty much what my mind is thinking all the time! I mean really, what’s not to love about bacon on or with just about anything and everything?! I love bacon by itself, of course, as well as in sandwiches, baked into brownies, sprinkled over a pizza, mixed into ice cream, and wait for it…crumbled over a pie.

My favorite way to cook bacon is to bake it. Much easier and way less of a mess for me than frying it. And it turns out so perfect and crisp every time! Plus, I’m usually flipping pancakes or scrambling eggs on top of the stove, so getting the bacon going in the oven first works great so that when everything else is done cooking, I can just pull this perfectly crisp bacon straight from the oven and transfer it to a platter to serve up with the rest of breakfast. It always gets rave reviews!

Be sure to use thick-cut bacon, brush it with lots of maple syrup and sprinkle it generously with dark brown sugar. And put the bacon in the oven while it preheats to cook it to the perfect crispness. Just a few tips to its terrific taste!

How to Make Baked Maple Brown Sugar Bacon

First, line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and place a wire rack on top. Spray the rack with non-stick cooking spray. Lay the bacon side-by-side across the rack. Brush both sides with maple syrup. Sprinkle the tops with brown sugar and rub it in gently.

Place the bacon on the top rack of the oven and then turn the oven on to 400°F. Bake the bacon for 20 minutes or until browned and starting to darken a bit around the edges, rotating after 10 minutes.
