I got this recipe from my friend Liz and it quickly became a breakfast must have in our house, you will love it!!1 1/2 lbs. thick cut bacon
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
Coarsely ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line two 15 1/2 x 10 1/2 inch cookie sheets with foil.
Place racks on pans or use a layer of well crinkled foil to form a makeshift rack. Arrange bacon slices on racks, overlapping the lean edge of each slice with the fat edge of the next. Brush with maple syrup and sprinkle evenly with black pepper.
Place pans in oven and bake for 25 minutes or until bacon is golden brown and crispy. Rotate pans between upper and lower oven racks half way through baking time.
Remove and drain on paper towels.....Enjoy!!
