Candy? Yes. Bacon? Yes! Candied bacon? Good God, yes! Slather thick-cut bacon in maple syrup, brown sugar and a hit of black pepper for a salty-sweet delight that elevates brunch to an ohmygosh level. We love serving it waffle-side in the morning, but the real treat is cutting it up into bite-sized pieces and pairing it with a stiff drink come cocktail hour. You’ll soon understand why it’s nicknamed “millionaire’s bacon.”

6 to 8 servings

1 pound thick-cut bacon

¼ cup maple syrup

½ cup brown sugar

Coarsely ground black pepper

1. Preheat the oven to 375°. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and top with a roasting rack. Lightly spritz the rack with nonstick spray. Lay the bacon on the rack, leaving just a tiny bit of room between each piece.

2. Brush the bacon with maple syrup, then sprinkle with brown sugar. Top with a generous sprinkling of pepper.

3. Bake until the sugar is melted and the bacon is crisp, 15 to 17 minutes (or a little longer if you like it extra crispy). Let the bacon cool for 5 minutes before removing it from the rack and serving.
