Peppermint Bacon

Alexis Murphy

For those of you who are maple syrup and bacon fans, this one’s for you. We make ours all the more festive by sprinkling a few crushed candy canes over them. Because hey, you can never have enough candy canes during the holidays.

Notes

Special thanks to Alexis Murphy of Jac o' lyn Murphy for helping us test this recipe. 

Ingredients

  • 1/2 Pound bacon
  • 1 box candy canes, crushed
  • 1-2 Tablespoon maple syrup

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Place each slice of bacon on a baking rack that’s on top of a baking sheet. Sprinkle each slice with a little bit of salt and pepper, and then bend the top of each slice so that the bacon resembles a candy cane. Roast the bacon until crisp, about 15-20 minutes. Remove the bacon from the oven and brush each slices with the maple syrup. Bake in the oven for an additional 4 or 5 minutes. When the bacon is done, remove from the oven and sprinkle each slice with the crushed candy canes.
