Maple Cannabis Bacon
Some things are just better together – peanut butter and chocolate, Hall and Oates, bacon and maple syrup. To this last quintessentially Canadian duo, we’ve added a third ingredient – cannabis.
Whether you serve this sweet-and-savoury treat alongside your favourite pancakes, or use it to transform a simple glass of Clamato juice and celery salt into a buzzy Caesar mocktail, we promise this bacon will make your dreams come true, (yeah you, you bacon your dreams come true, oooh oooh, oooh oooh oooh oooh.)
Recipe by Chef Ronnie Fishman.
1 lb thick-cut bacon (at least 16 pcs)
3 tbsp cannabis-infused maple syrup
Preheat oven to 375°F and position rack in the middle.
Arrange bacon slices onto a rimmed baking sheet lined with aluminum foil or parchment paper. (Or, if you have a wire rack, place the bacon on that, being sure to put it on top of a rimmed baking sheet to catch the drippings.)
Bake for 12-15 minutes and remove from the oven when it’s 3/4 of the way done. Brush the cannabis-infused maple syrup onto the bacon slices, then place back into the oven for another 3-5 minutes until golden brown and crispy.(The exact baking time will depend on the how thick your bacon is and how crisp you like it. Keep an eye on the bacon while it bakes — it cooks quickly once the glaze is brushed on.)
Optional: for a spicier maple bacon, stir chipotle powder or cayenne pepper into the maple syrup, to taste. You can also add brown sugar to taste for a sweeter bacon.
