Maple Bacon Pancake Syrup is salty, sweet, and dangerously hard to stop eating.
Total Time:20 minutes
Yield:4 servings 1x
7 slices smoked bacon
1/2 cup maple syrup or maple flavored syrup
4 ounces butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon maple extract (optional)
Pinch of salt
Preheat your oven to 375 F (190 C) and line a baking sheet with foil.
Lay your bacon out on the baking sheet and cook the bacon in the oven for about 15 minutes or until it's as crispy as you'd like. Remove the bacon to a paper towel-lined plate.
While your bacon is cooking, add the maple syrup to a small sauce pan and put it over low heat. Add the butter to the maple syrup in small chunks, whisking each chunk until it's completely melted before adding the next one. You will have a smooth emulsion once all the butter is whisked in.
Remove the pan from the heat and stir in vanilla extract, maple extract, and salt.
Once the bacon is ready, chop it up into half-inch pieces or smaller and add it to the syrup.
Spoon this awesomeness over your favorite pancakes or waffles and just try to stop smiling.
