April is National BLT Sandwich Month and my BLT is kicked up brown sugar + maple bacon.
Want to make our Brown Sugar + Maple BLT? Here’s how:
For the Brown Sugar + Maple Bacon, start by making the bacon by adding 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 2 teaspoons dijon mustard, and 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper in a medium bowl. Whisk to incorporate.
Preheat oven to 350 F. Line 1 pound bacon slices on a wire rack over pan and brush both sides with brown sugar and maple mixture and place in oven. Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until bacon is golden and crispy. Remove from oven and allow to cool on the rack.
On a slice of whole grain bread, add 2 or 3 butter lettuce leaves, several slices of tomato, and half the prepared bacon. Top with another slice of bread, cut into quarters, and serve.
