Bacon coated in a thick maple syrup glaze is the ultimate breakfast indulgence.

How to Make It

Step 1

Line two 10- by 15-inch baking pans with foil. Lay bacon slices side by side on foil.

Step 2

Bake in a 350° regular or convection oven until bacon edges begin to curl, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove pan from oven. Set a rack inside pan against bacon to hold in place; tilt pan slightly and spoon off and discard fat (see notes).

Step 3

Pour syrup evenly over bacon.

Step 4

Return to oven and bake until bacon is deep golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes longer.

Step 5

With tongs or a wide spatula, lift bacon from pan and set in a single layer on a rack over paper towels. If bacon sticks to pan, return to oven just until maple glaze softens, then remove from pan immediately. Let cool until crisp, about 5 minutes.

Chef's Notes

Young children need adult supervision when spooning fat from pan. Prepare bacon through step 3 up to 1 day ahead; cool, cover, and chill. Uncover and bake in a 350° oven until browned, 15 to 20 minutes. Let stand at room temperature up to 1 hour.
