Maple Bacon Popcorn

You had me at “bacon.”

  • Ingre­di­ents:
  • 10 cups popcorn
  • 1 lb. thick-sliced bacon, cooked and crumbed or rough­ly chopped
  • Hang on to 2 tbsp. of the bacon fat after you cook the bacon 
  • 34 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • 12 tsp. salt
  • Cook­ie sheet
  • Parch­ment paper

Pre­heat oven to 350°.

Line the cook­ie sheet with parch­ment paper, then spread out your 10 cups popcorn.

Sprin­kle with the bacon.

Whisk the reserved bacon fat, maple syrup, pep­per and salt, then driz­zle over pop­corn, toss­ing to coat.

Spread in a sin­gle lay­er and bake 10–12 min­utes, stir­ring occasionally.

Bacon Like a BOSS!

Are you drain­ing your bacon fat into a con­tain­er and throw­ing it out? Or worse, dump­ing it down the drain so it can be part of the next dis­gust­ing fat­berg to make the news?


It’s like unwrap­ping a Won­ka can­dy bar and throw­ing away the choco­late and the Gold­en Ticket!
