Bacon Crack

20150201_122502The Super Bowl came and went. Patriots won and I got to eat until my heart desired. Really a win win sort of day for me.

I went to a friends for the big game, taking with me a 6lb pulled pork butt I slow roasted for 8 hours and this little concoction I saw called Bacon Crack. Essentially, it is a combination of your typical treat food and everyone’s pork product; dough, sugar, bacon, repeat!

The thing was so good I had people asking for the recipe, and one guy dumped half of the container on his plate when I was trying to leave with the remaining pieces (I made 3 batches). In fact, the item was such a hit with the men at the party that I recommend any single lady looking to snag a beau to bake him this.

1 crescent dough roll (seamless sheet works best)
1 lb par-cooked bacon
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
Maple syrup (the real stuff, used for drizzling)

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Grab a cookie sheet and lay out a piece of parchment paper on top of it. Place the crescent dough on the sheet and roll it out thin. Puncture the dough with a fork up and down the dough so as to not allow for air bubbles.

Next, drizzle a little bit of maple syrup on the dough. Slather the entire thing with the bacon. The maple syrup is there to get everything to stick.

Mix the brown sugar and cayenne pepper together.

Cover all the edges of the bacon dough with the brown sugar mixture.

Bake in the oven for 25 minutes. Everything should be melted and caramelized together.

Let cool for 5 minutes. The treat should be crackly and not mushy. Cut with a pizza cutter.

Serve as a snack, appetizer, guilty whatever. Enjoy!
