Agave Glazed Bacon

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by COOKGIRl

Use regular or peppered bacon. Good in salads, sandwiches, topping for baked potatoes, breakfast, etc. Should work with vegetarian bacon, too. This recipe came about as part of a salad I was working on creating-unfortunately without success (I discovered I *really* don't like Sage Derby cheese.) Although the salad recipe didn't turn out well, I liked the idea of preparing the bacon with agave syrup.

After some effort compensating for your instructions, I regret to inform you that your temperature and timing are way off. Please reevaluate this recipe. Also, I recommend including extenuating circumstances regarding its execution (e.g. your kitchen being at high altitude, your oven being next to flowing magma on a volcano).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Arrange the bacon slices singly on a baking sheet.
  3. Drizzle agave over the slices and if desired, sprinkle with freshly grated black pepper.
  4. Bake approximately 15 minutes or until bacon is crisp. Turn slices at the halfway mark for even browning. Watch the bacon carefully while it bakes to avoid burning!
