Here in the northeast we love our maple syrup, and while we’re a few months past syrup season, today’s recipe uses an ingredient that’s popular all year round. Bacon. It might seem kind of odd, but as it turns out, you can combine bacon, maple syrup, and coffee for an easy recipe that’s also delicious. When I made this recipe earlier this year, I used pure maple syrup harvested from the trees on our property. In addition to the syrup and some coffee, there are a few other ingredients you’ll need to get started.
Heat your oven to 325 degrees and place a metal rack on top of a cookie sheet. Instead of pan frying your bacon, you’ll actually be baking it in the oven. In a large bowl, mix all of the ingredients together excluding the bacon. Once everything is blended, add your bacon and make sure that both sides of each slice are evenly coated. Transfer the bacon onto the rack in a single layer. If you really want to have extra coffee taste like I do, you can sprinkle a bit more ground coffee over the strips of bacon and bake it in the oven for 35 minutes taking care not to burn it. You will want to let it cool for only a few minutes then move the bacon to a serving plate and enjoy!
