This maple glazed bacon is the perfect balance of sweet and savory with a little hint of citrus. It tastes like a pancake breakfast all in one bite of deliciousness! I always try to find new ways to jazz up old-classics around the holidays to make regular meals feel a little bit more special.
As if bacon wasn’t already great enough on its own, you would be amazed how adding a touch of sweetness and zestiness really creates a whole new dish! Serve this bacon alongside my Paleo Cinnamon Rolls for a special and sweet holidays breakfast treat.
Maple Glazed Bacon (AIP/ Paleo)
Serves: 4 – 6
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20-25 minutes.
1lb uncured bacon
2 TBS pure maple syrup
1 tsp orange zest
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit. Place a cooling rack inside a rimmed baking sheet. Lay the pieces of bacon side by side on the rack and bake for 15 – 18 minutes, or until the fat as rendered and the bacon is brown and crispy.
Meanwhile, mix together the orange zest and maple syrup in a small bowl.
Once the bacon has finished baking, remove from the oven and brush the maple syrup onto each strip of bacon, place it back in the oven for about 3 more minutes.
Allow the bacon to cool for a few minutes on the rack before serving.
