About this Recipe


6 strips Maple Leaf Bacon (thick cut preferably)
1 tbsp Brown Sugar
1 tsp Cayenne Pepper
1 tsp Black Pepper
1/4 cup Hazelnut Spread
Coarse salt


Preheat your oven to 375˚F,

Arrange your strips of bacon on a baking pan that’s been sprayed with a bit of cooking spray.

Throw these in the oven and set your timer for 8 minutes.

Mix together your cayenne pepper, black pepper and brown sugar.

When your 8 minute timer goes off, flip over your bacon and sprinkle your spice mixture over each one of the strips. Be as liberal or as light handed as you want. I recommend liberty.

Set your timer for 8 minutes again, and throw the bacon back in the oven.

Ding! Bacon’s done. Put it on a rack to cool.

While the bacon is cooling, take your hazelnut spread and microwave it for 15 seconds to get it soft and workable.

Brush or spread the hazelnut spread all over the fully cooled and crispy bacon. I used a silicone brush and I really think that’s the best tool for the job.

Throw these bad boys in the freezer to let the hazelnut spread harden.

Plate and sprinkle with coarse salt
