Peppered Maple Bacon

I married a manly man. 
You know how I know? 
Bacon is an every meal thing. 
If I served it breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert, he'd only fall more in love with me. 
Would he have a heart attack at 42? Probably. 
So I save his sweet heart the punishment. 

But I do love to treat him to pure deliciousness... 
And I did that in the form of peppered maple bacon. 

Yep, he loved it. 
So does Baby Bear. And Bubba. 

Pamper your mister with this treat and he won't stop thanking you.
Just be prepared for the daily requests... 

What do you need? 
A pack of thick cut bacon (it'll be easier to flip in the oven) 
1/2 cup maple syrup
Black pepper

How you ask? 
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 
Lay the bacon out in a single layer on two baking sheets. 
Pop in oven for five minutes. 
Once it's bubbling nicely, brush it with a layer of maple syrup. 
Let cook for ten minutes.
Flip and brush with syrup again. 
Finish for ten more minutes or remove when cooked to your taste. 
Sprinkle with pepper.

Seriously this stuff comes out HOT. 
J learned that when he popped it right into his mouth.
Talk about burning the roof of your mouth.
Maybe sit on your hands for five minutes while it cools... 

Another idea: 
I made BLTs for Bubba and J the first time I cooked this.
Tasty! The sweet and spicy really added another element.
Taking BLT to the next level!

See the bacon on the side...
I'm telling you, just can't get enough of this stuff!
