Bacon lovers will unite for yet another remix of an americana staple. Divulge into staff writer Fern Menezes’ home recipe for Maple Bacon Popcorn; and prepare to enjoy the mouth-watering sensation of sweetness (from the maple syrup) and saltiness (from the bacon and popcorn combination).

1 tsp olive oil
1 lb thick-cut bacon
3/4 cup maple syrup
1 tsp. fresh-ground black pepper
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbsp bacon drippings (from cooking the bacon)
6 cups popcorn
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat.
Add bacon strips and cook until crisp. Remove bacon to a paper towel-lined plate.
Crumble bacon, toss with popcorn, maple syrup, pepper, salt, and drippings.
Spread popcorn mix in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake
for 10 minutes, rotating trays halfway through, stirring occasionally.
Serve hot.
