1/4 cup maple syrup

3 tablespoons instant coffee

Freshly ground pepper

8 slices thick-cut bacon

4 teaspoons unsalted butter

8 large eggs

Kosher salt

Buttered toast, for serving


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Set a wire rack on a rimmed baking sheet. Combine the maple syrup, instant coffee, and pepper to taste in a small saucepan over medium heat and cook, stirring, until the coffee dissolves. Remove from the heat. Stir in the bacon until coated. 
  2. Arrange the bacon on the rack; drizzle with some of the remaining coffee syrup. Bake 20 minutes, then flip and drizzle with the remaining syrup; continue baking until the bacon is dark brown and glazed, about 15 more minutes. 
  3. Meanwhile, heat 2 teaspoons butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Crack 4 eggs into the skillet, season with salt and pepper, and cook until opaque around the edges, about 2 minutes. Cover and cook 4 to 6 more minutes. Repeat with the remaining butter and eggs. Serve the fried eggs with the bacon and toast.
