Recipe By: Mario Tolentino, Executive Chef
SYRUP INGREDIENT LIST [yields about 4 servings]
1 Pound Uncured, Nitrate Free Bacon
1 Tablespoon Organic Maple Syrup
1 Packet Verve Instant Craft Coffee
1.5 Tablespoon Hot Water
Freshly Ground Coarse Black Pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Pour one packet of Verve Instant Craft Coffee into a small bowl, add in 1.5 tablespoons of hot water and gently stir to dissolve.
Add 1 tablespoon of maple syrup to the coffee mixture and gently stir.
Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil and set an oven-proof wire rack on top. Lay bacon on top of the rack. This will help catch the drippings and make for easier cleanup.
Use a pastry brush to gently brush the coffee and maple syrup mixture on top of the bacon.
Finish the bacon by lightly sprinkling on the coarsely cracked black pepper.
Place the sheet in the oven and bake for 18 to 23 minutes. Keep an eye towards the end of the baking time as oven temperatures can vary. You’re looking for golden, crispy bacon.
