  • Cuisine: American


Units Scale
  • 1 pound Thick Center Cut Bacon
  • 1/41/3 cup True Maple Syrup
  • 2 Tbsp Minced Fresh Rosemary
  • Flaked Sea Salt, optional for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with heavy duty aluminum foil. Place thick cut bacon on sheet in a single layer.
  2. Drizzle 1/3 of maple syrup onto bacon, and using a pastry brush gently brush the bacon to distribute the syrup. Sprinkle with 1/3 of minced rosemary.
  3. Place bacon into oven and bake for 10-11 minutes. Monitor to ensure that the maple syrup doesn’t burn.
  4. Flip the bacon, repeat with 1/3 of maple syrup and 1/3 of minced rosemary. Return the bacon to the oven for another 10-11 minutes. Continue to cook until it reaches your desired crispness.
  5. If last 1/3 of maple syrup is needed use during last couple minutes of cooking. Sprinkle with last 1/3 of minced rosemary if desired. I like a lot of rosemary.
  6. Remove the bacon from the oven, and allow to drain on wire cooling rack set over a baking sheet lined with paper towels (if you drain it on paper towels they will stick!). Devour.


Garnish with a little sea salt if desired at the end to counter the sweetness of the maple syrup. Not required.
