Candy? Yes. Bacon? Yes! Maple candied bacon? Good God, yes! Slather thick-cut bacon in maple syrup and sprinkle it with brown sugar and a hit of black pepper for a salty-sweet delight that elevates brunch to an ohmygosh level.

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°F. 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 the maple syrup and then sprinkle with the 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.
