This Maple Bourbon Glazed Bacon is super easy to make.  Just coat the bacon in the glaze mixture and bake in the oven until crispy.

The bacon will have a sweet candy-like outside and salty, savory inside.  The bourbon flavor is very mild.  Just a hint of whiskey in the background.

Use real maple syrup, grade A or grade B will work fine.

I used Jim Beam Whiskey because well, it was on sale.  It tasted great in this glaze.  Feel free to use your favorite bourbon whiskey.

      Thanks Ali! My house smelled like maple bacon for 2 days after making this! By the way, I love your site. I just spent some time over there last week. A spiralizer is on my Things To Buy List! I love all of your Inspiralized recipes :)

    I am making these as we speak and the cupcakes turned out PERFECTLY!!! I used a stand mixer for the wet ingredients so maybe that helped to avoid the sour issue mentioned above. They are so light and fluffy and a perfect base! I only used 6 tbs of bourbon and added one tbs of vanilla extract. I am NOT a baking person and could not be more pleased with how these turned out. Thank you so much and HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!!!

    • Nicole Harris says:

      Awesome! I’m so happy these worked out for you. Hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s Day!

  5. Michelle says:

    What if I have maple flavored whiskey, do you think I should still use syrup?

    • Nicole Harris says:

      Hi Michelle! If you think that the whiskey has enough of a maple flavor, sure go ahead and use that. If you do omit the maple syrup I would recommend increasing the brown sugar. Maybe an extra 1-2 tablespoons just to be sure that the glaze gets sticky enough.
