Candied Bacon slices on a white platter

Maple Candied Bacon (Million Dollar Bacon)

  • Author: Rose
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 3 1x


This Millionaire Bacon is crispy, chewy, salty, and sweet - perfect all on its own or added to other recipes! It's also super easy to make with only 3 ingredients!



6 strips of bacon

1/4 cup pure maple syrup

1/4 - 1/2 cup light brown sugar


Preheat your oven to 375°F.

Line a cookie sheet with foil (I recommend doubling it).  Lay out the strips of bacon and brush with maple syrup.  Sprinkle with brown sugar.

Bake for 10 minutes, then remove from the oven and flip the bacon.  Brush with more maple syrup and sprinkle again with brown sugar.

Bake for at least 5 more minutes (up to 15, depending on the thickness of your bacon). Check often - once it's close to done, it'll go from done to burnt very quickly!!

Transfer to a wire rack to cool and crisp up.  It'll stick together very easily so spread it out!



  • use thick-cut bacon for best results
  • be sure to line your pan before baking for easy cleanup
  • brown sugar and real maple syrup are key!
