     Pig Candy - Maple Glazed Bacon

 



Above: Pig candy, also known as maple glazed bacon.

 

 

Ingredients
6 slices of thick cut hardwood smoked bacon
2-3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1/4 - 1/3 cup granulated maple sugar



Utensils and Supplies
baking pan
baking racks
food brush
small bowl
paper towels
tongs


Above: This easy recipe has only three ingredients.


Above: You'll need a baking pan with 2 inch sides, long and wide enough to accommodate 6 slices of bacon.  Preheat oven
to 300 degrees.


Above: Line the baking pan with aluminum foil.  This extra step will make clean-up much easier after baking is done.



Above: Place a baking rack inside baking pan.



Above: Remove bacon from packaging and place six slices on the rack.



Above: Pour two to three tablespoons of pure maple syrup into a small bowl.  It is important to use pure maple syrup rather
than an imitation product sweetened with high-fructose corn syrup.



Above: Brush syrup over the bacon generously.


Sprinkle maple sugar on bacon.


Above: Some of the sugar will dissolve into the syrup.


Above: Turn the slices over.


Above: Once all of the slices are turned over, repeat the syrup and sugar process to coat the second side of the bacon.

 

 



When the slices are covered in syrup and sugar on both sides, it's time to bake.



Place the baking pan on the center rack when the oven temperature reaches 300 degrees.



Above: Bake for 20-30 minutes, checking the bacon at 5 minute intervals after the first 15 minutes has passed.  Bacon should
be well browned but not burnt when done.



Above: Remove pan from oven.


Place a clean rack over paper towels.


Remove the bacon from the baking pan and place on the clean rack.


Allow pig candy to cool until crisp.  Pig candy is a great treat by itself.  We often chop up the pig candy into bite-sized
pieces and sprinkle them over vanilla
ice cream.  Pig candy also makes a great topping for cupcakes.
