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

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Mix the maple syrup and dark brown sugar in a small bowl.
  2. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and set a rack on stop. 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.
  3. Bake until brown and crisp, 20 to 25 minutes. Loosen the bacon from the rack and let it cool there 5 minutes before serving.
