Ingredients

4 slice
bacon
4 oz
irish butter (salted specified but there's enough salt in the bacon)
1 tsp
maple syrup, to taste (no fake maple syrup allowed!)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cook bacon until crisp; drain on a plate lined with paper towel. When cool enough to handle, crumble the bacon into very small pieces.
2
Use a fork to lightly mash the butter; stir in the bacon pieces and maple syrup. Place on a piece of plastic wrap and roll to form into a log. Twist the ends of the wrap to secure and refrigerate until the butter holds its shape. To serve, cut into pats.
