Prep Time Cook Time Total Time Servings
10 mins 25 mins 35 mins 4 servings


  • 1 pound (454 g) thick-cut bacon
  • 1/2 cup (100 g) brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 ml) ground black pepper

Cooking Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a wire rack on top. This will help the bacon cook evenly and prevent it from sticking to the pan.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar, maple syrup, Dijon mustard, and black pepper. Stir until well combined.
  4. Lay the bacon strips on the wire rack, making sure they are not overlapping.
  5. Brush the brown sugar mixture generously over the bacon, coating each slice evenly.
  6. Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the bacon is crispy and caramelized. Keep an eye on it towards the end to prevent burning.
  7. Once cooked, remove the bacon from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes. The bacon will become even crispier as it cools.
  8. Transfer the candied bacon to a serving platter or cutting board. You can serve it whole or cut it into bite-sized pieces, depending on your preference.
  9. Serve the Candied Bacon immediately and watch it disappear!
