Maple Candied Bacon can be made in the oven or in your air fryer. And is made with a few simple ingredients. That of Maple Syrup, Brown Sugar and Bacon of course. 

The first time I tried Candied bacon was a local pub!

I ordered a CEASAR also known as a BLOODY MARY drink and it came on the rim. 

My first thought was. Can I just ordered the bacon next time! 

And I learned I could. And I did 🙂
