A good basic recipe found on www.foodbycountry.com. Posted for ZWT4. Recipe says it can be served as a main dish or as an appetizer (cut into smaller pieces).
- 1⁄2 cup cider vinegar
- 3⁄4 cup maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 lb approximately Canadian bacon
- Preheat oven to 300°F (150°C).
- Combine vinegar, maple syrup, and brown sugar in a bowl. Set aside.
- Slice Canadian bacon about ½-inch thick. Arrange the slices in a casserole or baking dish, and spoon the syrup mixture over the slices.
- Bake for 30 minutes. Serve hot or at room temperature. (To serve as a snack, cut slices into bite-sized pieces and serve with toothpicks.).
I LOVE, just LOVE sweet cure bacon, so this delivered on ALL fronts!! Crispy and maple syrupy sweet with a hint of sour with the cider vinegar - what a GREAT combination - JUST loved it!!! I served this as an appetiser before a special dinner for my mum and dad and friends last night......I served it with a cranberry sauce dip and they ALL vanished!! I will be making this again - saved for the future - THANKS for such an easy and different way to serve bacon! Made for ZWT4 - just gorgeous! FT:-) Edited to add - I used Canadian bacon and also some streaky bacon - both worked very well!
We were in two minds about this one.. the maple syrup seems a little too predominant for our tastes and very sweet indeed. It was hard to roll up the cooked bacon so I got it onto cocktail aticks as best I could , it was nice but nothing that we really jumped up and down about. Please see my Rating System: 3 lovely stars for a recipe where maybe cultural differences have a big part to play on personal preferences, we obviously perfer things less sweet here, so My advice would be: try this for yourself and see what suits you. We are pleased to have tried it.. Thanks!
We really liked the sweet and slightly sour taste of the bacon. It worked really nice as a light meal with some oven fries. Made for ZWT4.
