Maple syrup is what gives this bacon crack its irresistibly sweet flavor. You could try honey or other sweeteners, but I would be worried that they would burn rather than caramelize.
This recipe is perfect just the way it is, don’t do too much tinkering. You can bring this to potlucks or parties and no one would ever complain. I certainly wouldn’t! Or you can stash it away for yourself and hope no one finds it till you’ve had your fill. Whatever your choice, it’s a great way to indulge.
Cooking spray, for parchment
10 slices bacon, chopped
1 tube crescent rolls
1/4 c. maple syrup
3/4 c. brown sugar
Preheat oven to 375F. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray, or line with parchment paper, set aside.
Cook bacon in a skillet for 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Drainon a paper towel-lined plate.
Roll out crescent rolls onto the prepared baking sheet. Combine into one single sheet by pinching the seams together. Prick all over with a fork.
Drizzle with half the syrup, then sprinkle a single layer of brown sugar on top. Try to cover all over. Top with the cooked bacon, and finally drizzle with remaining syrup.
Bake for about 20-25 minutes, until golden.
Cool completely, then slice and serve.
