Maple Candied Bacon

Lynnda Cloutier


If you like you can toss in a pinch of chili powder or smoked paprika into the syrup mix for added zip. You may want to make extra of this stuff. It flies off the plate. Dijon mustard has a nice vinegary bite that cuts through the saltiness of the bacon, Grade B syrup is richer in flavor, and the one to use in this recipe. Serves 4 to 6Source: Unknown
