When You’re Frying It Up It Sounds Like Applause

In time for the weekend

From the kitchen of Maple Trout Lilli

“Everything tastes better with a little bit of bacon.”  Serving bacon, coated with pure maple syrup and baked until crisp,, completes just about anything you put it on.  A maple-bacon BLT…come on, it’s amazing; or crunch up a few slices and serve atop your oatmeal, just like Gramma Wiltz used to make.  With just two ingredients, it’s ooh-so-easy and oh-so-delicious.  Heard a comedian recently comment on the wonders of bacon…it went something like this:  :”When you’re frying it up it sounds like applause….”yeah bacon.”  Here’s to a perfect combination.

-Thick cut bacon
-Pure maple syrup


Preheat oven to 400 degreesPlace baking rack on a sheet pan and arrange the bacon in one layer on the baking rack. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the bacon begins to brown.  Remove the pan carefully from the oven; there will be hot grease in the pan!  Brush the bacon slices with Pure Maple Syrup and bake for another 3-5 minutes, flip over w/ tongs and lather up the other side for another 3-5 minutes or until the bacon is warm golden brown…Longer if you like crispier bacon.  Transfer to a plate w/ paper towel and serve.
