It truly is amazing what 3 simple ingredients can do to a slice of bacon.  Don’t get me wrong, bacon, of course, is quite the treat on its own.  But add a quick and easy glaze the last two minutes of cooking and you’ve got something quite special.  I generally serve this alongside mini german puffed pancakes and breakfast potatoes for a meal with absolutely nothing left of the table.

And isn’t that what every cook likes to see.

Maple Dijon Glazed Bacon

recipe from Bobby Flay
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes.
  • Cook Time: 25 minutes.
  • Ready in 30 Minutes.
  • Makes: 4 Servings
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 8-12 slices bacon, however much you can fit on your baking sheet
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Spray a baking rack with cooking spray and place on top of baking sheet.
  • Lay the bacon on the baking rack. Bake in the oven until fully cooked, we like it crispy, but with just a hint of chew left, usually about 20-25 minutes for my oven. Remove from the oven and using a paper towel, blot and soak up any excess oil.
  • Whisk together the maple syrup, mustard and pepper in a small bowl. Then, using a pastry brush, generously glaze the bacon with the syrup. Return the bacon to the oven for another 2 minutes, to desired crispness. Transfer to a platter and serve.
