What you need:
4 Strips of Bacon
2 T Unsalted Butter plus more as needed
1/2 c Popping Corn
1/4 c Maple Syrup
- Cook the bacon, on both sides, in a frying pan over low heat. Place the bacon onto a plate lined with paper towels. Once it cools, crumble and set aside.
- Place the leftover bacon fat into a saucepan that has a tight lid. Heat on high. Pour in the corn kernels. Shake the pan so the kernels do not burn. Once it has started to quickly pop, reduce the heat to medium. Once the popping slows, turn the heat to low and finish popping. Pour the popcorn into a bowl.
- Melt the butter in the microwave. Drizzle the maple syrup and butter over the popcorn. Add the bacon and sprinkle with salt.
*Update* After I made this for the first time I added more bacon, double what the recipe says. I thought this was an ok treat. I don't think I'd make it again, but it was fun to try. Also, it needs to be eaten the day you make it. Leftovers get all soggy and gross.
