Bourbon Maple Peppered Bacon 

I made this for our Mother’s Day Brunch at work and I was surprised at how excited people were over it! Especially because it is incredibly easy to make ! Here’s how I made it … 

2 pounds Peppered Bacon 

1 cup Bourbon Barrel-Aged Pure Maple Syrup by Williams-Sonoma 


1 cup maple syrup & 2 tablespoons Bourbon 

  • Preheat oven to 375 
  • Cover 2 sheet pans with parchment paper 
  • Arrange the bacon on sheets and back for 10-12 minutes until par-cooked (not crispy), drain and pat grease off with paper towels.  
  • In a skillet combined the Bourbon Barrel-Aged Pure Maple Syrup or the maple with Bourbon and the par-cooked Bacon. 
  • Simmer for 25-30 minutes on low.  Do not allow to get too hot, it will burn the maple syrup.  Turn with tongs every few minutes. 
  • The syrup should get very thick and be nice and absorbed into bacon.
