Doesn't the idea of candied bacon sound amazing? It has me drooling just at the very idea. And I love adorning bacon with flavors and enjoying them as a snack, especially with a sweet element, like my recipes for Chocolate Dipped Bacon and my Caramelized Bacon Knots.
When it comes to candied bacon, I've seen recipes that include brown sugar, cinnamon, cayenne, black pepper, and more. But because this dish is for breakfast, and you'll also be boiling eggs, I wanted to keep things as simple as possible. And I know that you're going to like the results!
The key to the “candied” part for this recipe is some low carb maple syrup. There are some cheap sugar free options out there but I recommend investing in a quality product. I have two great options for you: the first is the Maple and Vanilla Syrup from ChocZero – it is wonderfully thick, tastes amazing, and isn’t maltitol-based like the cheaper alternatives. You can get it from Amazon or Netrition!
And I also love the Maple Syrup from Lakanto – and if you use coupon code “SAFTC” you can get 20% off everything in the Lakanto store!!! Their syrup is sweetened with a combination of monkfruit and erythritol, and only contains 1g net carb per serving of two tablespoons.
Once you have some delicious low carb maple syrup – candied bacon dippers are SO easy to make – plus you'll use the syrup for so many other recipes and dishes – like my Low Carb Maple Nut Pralines!
How to Make Soft Boiled Egg with Candied Bacon Dippers
To make the candied bacon, cut slices of bacon in half and place them on a metal rack over a baking pan. Place under a preheated broiler and cook until they are nearly ready, then brush them on both sides with the low carb maple syrup.
Return them to the broiler until they have crisped up. Transfer the bacon to paper towels to absorb any excess grease.
Soft boil the eggs – I use an egg timer that goes in the water with them – so easy!
Place the cooked eggs into egg cups and remove the top of each egg with a knife. Serve with the yummy candied bacon dippers!
This is such a great combination of flavors!
