What's this?

Your guests will go wild over this sweet, salty, and crispy treat, so make plenty. Leftovers are great on salads, or just eaten as a snack.

Ingredients

  • 1 Pound cold bacon

  • 1/2 Cup pure maple syrup, warmed

  • 1/2 Cup brown sugar, plus more as needed

Steps

  • 1

    When ready to cook, set Traeger temperature to 300℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
  • 2

    Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and place a wire rack on top. Lay bacon strips in a single layer on the wire rack.
  • 3

    Using a pastry brush, brush each strip of bacon on both sides with the warmed maple syrup, then sprinkle brown sugar evenly on both sides.
  • 4

    Put the baking sheet in the grill and cook bacon for 60-75 minutes, or until bacon browns and appears to be crisping.
  • 5

    Allow the bacon to cool slightly before eating. Enjoy!
