Beer Candied Bacon


1 lb thick cut bacon
3/4 c. lager
1 c. maple syrup
2 tbsp. black pepper
1 tsp. salt


Preheat the oven to 375. Put the bacon in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until crispy, about 20 minutes. Meanwhile, combine the rest of the ingredients in a saucepan and reduce over medium heat until reduced by half and thicker than syrup, about 20 minutes. Brush the glaze on the bacon and bake until caramelized, 8-10 minutes. Cool on a rake for 5 minutes.
