Maple Bacon Crack

The name says it all!

I first made this snack for July 4th, 2016 -- Recently, my neighbor asked me to make it again.  I couldn't recall the recipe.  But I ran across a couple pictures (on my computer) that I'd taken and it all came together.  A quick search for the ingredients and this recipe (from Delish) popped up.  Instead of the regular crescent rolls, I used the full sheet of dough Pillsbury offers.  Quick, easy and addictive!

Bacon Crack


  • Cooking spray, for parchment
  • 10 slices bacon, chopped
  • tube crescent rolls
  • 1/4 c. maple syrup
  • 3/4 c. brown sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Line a baking sheet with parchment and spray with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a medium skillet, cook bacon for 6 minutes, stirring pieces occasionally. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
  3. Roll out crescent rolls onto parchment. Pinch seams to make one single sheet. Prick all over with a fork.
  4. Drizzle with half the maple syrup, then top with a single layer of brown sugar, doing your best to cover all over. Top with cooked bacon, distributing evenly, and drizzle with remaining maple syrup.
  5. Bake until golden, 22 to 25 minutes.
  6. Let cool completely before slicing into pieces and serving.

Upon further investigation, I found this video, posted in an early "post" on this Blog -- The Food Blog!  🙂
