Bring on the Bacon!

Just a few more days to go and we need some protein added to our menu! Remember the discussion I had with my “monsters”? Well, the next thing they yelled out after “lobster” was “MAPLE SYRUP.” New England is very well known for their maple syrup, I agree, but how on earth can we incorporate that into our menu?? It took some time and tons of Pinterest searches, but I finally found the perfect solution from The Kitchen Whisperer …. she calls it “man candy.” I was cracking up!! We are leaving out the bourbon, because, ya know … kiddos, but my oldest nephew is super excited about this recipe and wants to help! YAY! He wants to make these as skewers so we will adapt her instructions a bit to suit his idea.


1lb Bacon

1/4 cup maple syrup

1 cup light brown sugar


🥓 Soak skewers in water for 30-60 minutes.

🥓 Preheat oven to 400 degreesF

🥓 Combine brown sugar and maple syrup in saucepan over medium/low heat. Cook until reduced to a thick glaze. Stir frequently and watch closely!

🥓 Fold bacon strips accordian style

🥓Insert skewers through 2 pieces of bacon and unfold on skewers. Should look like ribbon.

🥓 Place bacon skewers on foil lined pan.

🥓Coat top side of bacon with sugar/syrup reduction.

🥓Cook for 13 minutes.

🥓Remove from oven. Flip skewers over. Coat top side with sugar/syrup reduction.

🥓 Cook for 13 minutes.

🥓 Let cool and enjoy!

Stayed tuned for the next item on our Super Bowl Sunday menu!
