While recently visiting the Nestle headquarters on behalf of another blogger, I was treated to a delicious breakfast prepared by the Nestle chefs. Everything they prepared was so delicious, but my favorite breakfast dish by far was the maple glazed bacon with pecans – I was tempted to fill my purse with them!
The Nestle chef who created the dish shared his recipe with us and knew that I had to try it when I returned home!
They’re savory, yet sweet, and while Angeline and Chris don’t care for pecans, they gobbled up the “plain” version that I made for them. I think these maple glazed bacon strips are going to be a Saturday morning breakfast staple from now on!
Maple Glazed Bacon Strips with Pecans
1 package of bacon
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1/3 cup finely chopped pecans
Preheat your oven to 250 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or tin foil for easier clean up.
Lay your raw bacon on the parchment paper and drizzle with pure maple syrup. With a pasty brush, evenly spread the maple syrup on each bacon strip.
Sprinkle with brown sugar and chopped pecans.
Bake at 250 degrees for one hour.
These maple glazed bacon strips with pecans are so delicious…I had to cut the finished strips in half to slow myself down while eating them!
