Does this really need an introduction? I mean, come on, it’s bacon, and it’s candied! Yum!
This is a super easy recipe with three ingredients. I suggest using a non-stick pan that is kind of worn out. I have a non-stick that is not really “non-stick” anymore but have kept as it’s kind of my junk pan.
I rarely throw away pots and pans unless they are complete garbage and reason being is that I don’t want to ruin some of my nicer pots and pans when making something like this. This recipe gets really syrupy (is that a word?) and can stick to the pan making it a pain in the butt to clean. But, since I don’t really care about this pan, I can clean it with a coarser sponge and not worry about ruining it as it’s already been around the block one too many times.

5-6 slices of thick cut bacon (I did five as I was doing a specific amount for a recipe)
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon maple syrup
Frying pan, suggest an old worn out one
Step 1: Place your bacon in a frying pan and turn temperature to medium heat.
Step 2: Sprinkle half the brown sugar on the bacon, cook a 2-3 minutes.
Step 3: After a few minutes, flip the bacon and sprinkle the remaining brown sugar on the bacon. Cook another 2-3 minutes.
Step 4: Add the maple syrup to the pan and cook until preferred doneness. Continue to flip the bacon every minute or so to get an even cook and coating.
NOTE: The more you cook with the syrup, the thicker the sauce will get. I suggest at least 1-2 minutes per side.
Step 5: Remove the bacon from the pan and let cool before handling.
