Christmas Bacon Crack

Dave T.


Good for Christmas or anytime you want a little something different as a treat or maybe as a gift. Makes a wonderful side for Christmas morning breakfast. Bacon, brown sugar, syrup, crunchy, crispy, sweet, tangy, spicy, what is there not to like. I use hickory syrup just because I make it and it’s special. Maple syrup, which I also make is good as well. Merry Christmas to all, love each other and always give of yourself.

How to Make Christmas Bacon Crack


  1. On medium heat brown sl bacon for 5min per side and set to drain on paper towels till cooled (Turkey bacon can be substituted for the faint of heart)
  2. On a parchment lined baking sheet, spray lightly with cooking spray (I like butter flavored). Roll out one tube of cresent rolls and pinch together seams.
  3. Brush pastry with 1/8 c of syrup covering entire surface. Sprinkle very lightly with white pepper, paprika, and chipotle pepper, (use as little or as much as you like, but go very very easy or leave off completely) then coat evenly with brown sugar to cover completely.
  4. Chop cooled bacon and sprinkle evenly over the entire top and drizzle with remaining syrup.
  5. Bake for 10 min, turn and bake for 10-15 more min till golden brown and delicious looking (warning, at this point do not try to lick top surface as it will result it blisters and taste buds being destroyed)
  6. Important******Remove from oven and allow to cool completely!!!!!!! Slice into desired shapes and serve. I prefer diamonds, why? Just because.
  7. ENJOY and share at your own discretion.
