Candied Bacon

You’ll Need:

  • 1 Grilling Stone – or, 2 Grilling Stones, if you want to cook all the bacon at the same time which frankly is easier and faster.
  • 1 Pkg. of your favourite thick bacon – at least 12 slices per pack. I prefer just a lightly smoked.
  • 3/4 C. real maple syrup
  • A long sleeved shirt and apron 😉
  • Large spatula and perhaps tongues
  • Platter to fit finished product on for a perfect WOW presentation!

To Prepare:

Heat your Grilling Stones on high setting on your Grill. (Drip a drop of water on it, if it sizzles and disappears, it’s ready!).
Place your slices of bacon on tightly side by side and fry until just until they are not curling anywhere yet. Now flip them over with a large spatula or tongs whatever you are best and quickest with. Once the same starts, you begin to see the odd twiest, flip again. You will be flipping the bacon over twice so it does not curl. It will allow the syrup to be distributed evenly and you’ll get the best taste.

Once bacon is a couple minutes from your desired crispness, shut off the propane or gas of the grill. Move the bacon even close together.

Starting from the left side and moving to the right, or opposite if your left handed ;-), drizzling with pure maple syrup down the centre of each of the bacon strips directly from the measuring cup (using only 1/2 for the first coating). Once you’ve covered each once, go back repeating with the remaining syrup. Now, allow to sit for at least one more minute to allow the syrup to thicken with lid down. Then begin removing candied bacon with the spatula from the left side or where you first began coating moving to the right. A lot of the results lie in the timing, only your know your grill.

I'm a lover of grilling, wife to an awesome man, mom, to five amazing children, three human, two non human (puppies), Nan of two extremely sweet grandkids and some cool fish. I had my first business at the age of nine. My first "Official business" at the age of 21 in a Saskatchewan market. The youngest President of the Chamber of Commerce in our community, my love of business grew. I've worked for small business and large conglomerates since moving to Edmonton, yet my favorite is certainly this: introducing people to using soapstone for grilling and chilling. It has such incredible properties including being bacterial resistant, heating and chilling quickly, searing food to enhance their amazing flavors, easy to clean food safe and used by our ancestors, it's almost like reversing time. Our family handcrafts wonderful soapstone grilling and chilling products for everyone to enjoy healthy grilling and chilling.
