Candied bacon is a great party snack.Before cooking the bacon, coat each piece with a sugar-maple syrup glaze to complement the intense, salty taste of the meat.Candied bacon is sure to be a crowd pleaser and should only take thirty minutes to prepare.
Step 1: The oven should be at 350 degrees.
The oven needs to be preheated about 15 minutes.
Step 2: The baking sheet needs to be prepared.
Put a wire cooling rack on top of the large baking sheet by covering it with foil or paper.It will be easier to clean up a mess with the foil or parchment paper.If you don’t have a wire rack, cover the baking sheet with paper.Candied bacon can still be made without a rack.
Step 3: The glaze ingredients should be mixed.
In a large bowl, add the sugar, rice vinegar, and maple syrup.All ingredients should be fully mixed.
Step 4: Put the bacon in the oven by putting it on the wire rack.
Put the bacon on the wire rack.Make sure that there are no overlaps by spacing each slice out evenly.Place the bacon on the baking sheet if you don’t have a wire rack.Don’t add the glaze until you cook the bacon.
Step 5: The bacon should be baked.
The bacon should be placed in the center of the oven.Allow it to cook for a while.
Step 6: The bacon slices should be turned.
Carefully remove the tray from the oven after ten minutes.The bacon should be brushed with the sugar glaze.Use a pair of tongs or a small spatula to cook bacon.The bacon should be brushed onto the other side.
Step 7: For the next five minutes, bake.
Allow the bacon to bake for five more minutes after you put the tray back in the oven.After five minutes, remove the tray from the oven and use a brush to brush the glaze on both sides of the bacon.Put the bacon back in the oven.The sugar glaze on the outside is built up by Basting the bacon.
Step 8: The bacon should be kept basting.
After five minutes, remove the bacon from the oven.The bacon should be cooked with the sugar-maple syrup glaze.When the bacon looks done, repeat the basting every five minutes.Thirty five minutes should be the total baking time.Break off a small piece of bacon if you don’t know if it’s done.
Step 9: Cool for 5 minutes.
Take the tray out of the oven after bacon is cooked.Lift up the wire rack and put the bacon on the counter.The bacon will be cooked further if the heat from the tray is stopped.Remove the bacon from the wire rack by using a small spatula.There are bacon slices on the tray.It is possible to serve bacon at room temperature.
