12 rashers rindless lean streaky bacon
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp light brown soft sugar
1 tsp Dijon mustard
- Heat the oven to 190C/fan 170C. Put the bacon on a rack over a baking tray. Mix the syrup, sugar and mustard in a small bowl with a splash of water, then lightly brush over the bacon. Cook in the oven for 10 minutes, then turn and brush the other side and cook for another 10 minutes.
- Keep brushing and turning until the bacon looks glassy, crisp and caramelised – this will take another 5-10 minutes depending on the power of your oven. Keep a close eye on the bacon for the last few minutes of cooking, because the sugar can easily burn.
