Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
  • 12 slices thick-cut bacon
  • 2 teaspoons fennel seeds, crushed
  • Freshly ground black pepper
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Mix the maple syrup and dark brown sugar in a small bowl.

  • Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and set a rack on top. Put the bacon on the rack leaving space between the strips. Brush with the maple syrup mixture and then sprinkle some fennel seeds on top--fennel is a strong spice so use it sparingly. Season with black pepper.

  • Bake until brown and crisp, 20 to 25 minutes. Loosen the bacon from the rack and let it cool there 5 minutes before serving.
