Crispy Spicy Maple Bacon

Saying "I love you mom" this Mother's day is as easy as...bacon! This special breakfast in bed recipe collection (French ToastRhubarb Syrup & Crispy, Spicy Maple Bacon, seen below) will be sure to put you in Mom's good books for the rest of the month (at least!). This recipe was featured in 2009 Well Seasoned Nibbles newsletter.

Crispy Spicy Maple Bacon

Because nothing says "I love you mom" like Breakfast in Bed + Bacon.


  • 1 lb double smoked, thick sliced bacon
  • ½ cup pure maple syrup
  • ¼ tsp. cayenne pepper
    • *Available from Well Seasoned


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil to make your clean-up a little easier.
  2. Arrange bacon slices on the foil and place on the center rack of the oven. Check on the bacon 8-10 minutes later, drain off some of the fat and baste it with the maple syrup. Check again in 3-4 minutes to baste again.
  3. As soon as the bacon is golden brown, but not excessively crisp, it's done. The exact time will depend largely on the thickness of the bacon slices. Remove the pan from the oven.
  4. Transfer the bacon to another sheet pan lined with paper towels to absorb the fat. Serve warm bacon with granola crusted french toast.
