There are many different types of foods we might enjoy but one that is a treat beyond compare is bacon. Not only does it taste good on its own, it seems to make everything else just a little more delicious as well. In fact, sometimes it takes a simple food and makes it over the top delicious! That is why we were so happy when we found this recipe.
One combination of flavors that is absolutely delicious is when you put maple syrup with bacon. The sweet and salty taste is just fantastic. When you put them together, add some brown sugar and bake it into this maple bacon crunch, you have a snack that is going to be the highlight of the party. Of course, you don’t need to have a party to enjoy it. Just make it as a snack and watch the smiles begin.

-1 lb. bacon
-1 pkg Pillsbury crescent rolls
-1/2 cup maple syrup
-3/4 cup brown sugar
-Line a baking sheet with foil and liberally grease the foil with cooking spray.
-Unroll the crescent rolls into one single plane of dough and pinch any perforations together to seal. Stretch the dough out to fit the size of the pan with your hands so it’s even. Prick the dough with a fork all over. Set aside.
-Partially cook the bacon (safe enough to eat but not crispy)
-Drizzle 1/4 cup of the maple syrup over the crescent roll dough. Sprinkle with about 1/4 cup of the brown sugar. Top with torn pieces of the cooked bacon. Drizzle the remaining maple syrup on top of the bacon pieces, and top with the remaining brown sugar.
-Bake at 325F for approx. 25 minutes or until bubbling and caramelized. Remove from the oven and allow the pan to come to room temperature or warm to the touch before cutting or breaking into pieces.
