BACON! Who doesn’t love bacon? Beside vegetarians and people who “prefer sausage”. Those people tend to freak me out. I do love sausage but when the option is there, bacon will always win. The salt, the crisp, the FLAVOR! I could really go on and on. A couple weekends ago I drove up to Santa Barbara with some of my best friends from college. We had a heck of a night out on the town and needed a hearty breakfast in the AM. My friend Kelly and her boyfriend made a delicious meal and the highlight was this maple pepper bacon. HOLY MOLY. It’s really all I could think about for the next week so I knew I had to recreate it. This is such a simple way to make bacon go from good to AMAZING!!! I realize I have used a fair amount of CAPS LOCK this blog post, but for bacon… it’s a bit more than neccessary. Although you probably stopped reading after I said Maple Pepper Bacon and you are at the store right now. I understand. Ready, Set, BACON!
Sprinkle on lots of pepper.
Drizzle with a good amount of maple syrup.
Crisp those bad boys up!
Enjoy your salty, sweet and peppery bacon!

The amounts of each the pepper and syrup just depend on how peppery and sweet you want it. Place in the oven and bake for 18-25 minutes or until desired crisp is achieved.
