Maple Bacon Spread

bacon spread recipe

Are you the kind of person who puts maple syrup on your bacon? Yes you say? How doesn’t do such a wonderful thing? Well then, you will love this Maple Bacon Spread. It’s a maple syrup covered bacon strip rolled up into a spread that can be eaten by itself on a piece of toast or alongside some delicious cheese, figs or arugula.


  • 1/3 pound bacon, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar (dark)
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup 1 tbs bourbon-whiskey
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken stock
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Heat a large pan at medium-low heat and add the bacon. Cook until some pieces of bacon are crispy. Stir in half of the brown sugar-keep mixing for 3 minutes. Then add in the paprika, salt and black pepper and cook for another 3 minutes.

Slowly pour in 1/2 cup bourbon-whiskey and 1/2 cup of chicken stock. Keep at a low simmer until you notice mixture begin to thicken. Then stir in the maple syrup and the remainder of the chicken stock, brown sugar and bourbon-whiskey until most of the liquid is evaporated. Then blend mixture in a blender until pureed. Place spread in jar and allow to cool.
