Author Notes: An easy way to make yourself very popular at brunch.fiveandspice

Serves about 4 to 6 as a side dish

  • 1 pound thick-cut bacon
  • 3 tablespoons grade B maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons Sriracha (use more or less to taste)
  1. Heat your oven to 400° F and line a couple of rimmed baking sheets with parchment or foil. Lay your bacon out on the baking sheets making sure the pieces don't overlap.
  2. Mix together the maple syrup and sriracha in a small bowl and brush the bacon slices on both sides with it. You should still have a bunch of the sauce left -- you'll use this to brush occasionally as the bacon is cooking.
  3. Stick the pans of bacon in the oven and bake until browned and crispy, about 18 to 25 minutes (depending on the thickness of your bacon), taking the pans out and brushing the tops of the bacon with more Sriracha-maple sauce a couple of times during the baking process (once about halfway through and once towards the very end when they're looking almost done). Transfer the cooked bacon to a plate or platter and serve.

This is so yummy. I've made this for a couple of sleepovers for my kids and their buddies. I am now the cool mom.

If you baked the bacon on a rack all the fat would drip into the cookie sheet, which would make the bacon crispier. Then you could save the bacon fat drippings to cook with.

Yes, that's a great way of doing it. I'm a fan of bacon cooked in its own fat, which is why I leave it directly on the pan. :)

I would never have thought to dress up bacon in this way, but I am SO going to try this tomorrow for Sunday breakfast....brilliant!

Thanks so much Steve! It's awfully yummy. As my husband says, "I think you could build a restaurant around bacon like this" hehe.

Sounds wonderful! I learned the same trick from my mother with brown sugar and black pepper. I can't wait to try this this weekend!
