Spicy Maple Pecan Bacon

Ingredients

  • Thick cut smoked back bacon (21.1oz-600g)
  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup (pure)
  • 2 tablespoons ground pecan nuts
  • 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper

Method

  1. Pre-heat oven to 428˚F/220˚C regular oven or 394˚F /200˚C fan assisted oven. Place half of the bacon onto the roaster. Pop into the oven for 10 minutes
  2. Meanwhile, place all of the remaining ingredients into a small mixing bowl and combine
  3. Once ten minutes has passed, remove the bacon from the oven and set on a plate. Place the second lot of bacon onto the roaster and pop into the oven for 10 minutes. Whilst the second batch of bacon is cooking, using a pastry brush, coat both sides of each piece of bacon with the maple marinade
  4. Once the second batch is cooked, remove and place on a plate as before and return the first batch of coated bacon to the roaster and pop into the oven for 15 minutes. Repeat the marinade process with the second batch of bacon and cook that for 15 minutes also, when the first batch is complete
  5. Serve and enjoy hot or cold
