Maple Bacon Crack
- 1 pound of bacon
- 1 package refrigerated crescent rolls, 8 ct
- ½ cup maple syrup
- ¾ cup brown sugar
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Place bacon on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes, or until right before it gets crispy. (It will bake a while longer, later).
- Remove from oven and drain on paper towels and chop into large pieces.
- Turn oven to 325 degrees.
- Line another rimmed baking sheet with foil and liberally spray with cooking spray.
- Unroll the crescent rolls onto the baking sheet being careful not to separate any. You want a single rectangle of dough.
- Pinch any perforations together to seal and stretch the dough so it forms an even rectangle.
- Use a fork to prick holes all over the dough.
- Drizzle 1/4 cup of maple syrup on top of the crescent dough.
- Sprinkle ¼ cup of the brown sugar on top of the syrup.
- Top with chopped bacon.
- Drizzle remaining maple syrup on top of the bacon and top with the remaining brown sugar.
- Bake for about 25 minutes at 325 degrees.
- Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting into bite sized pieces.

I made this and the crescent was too soft and sticky. It stuck to the foil. I sprayed it and pinched the doings together but not sure hiwntonaboicenthis for next time. Any suggestions?
Try using non-stick foil next time or spraying regular foil with non-stick cooking spray. The sugar does get sticky.
This was so easy to make. Very addicting. I have made it twice everybody likes it.
I’m so glad you liked it! 🙂
Can I make this the night before? Can I reheat it some way or does it even have to be served warm?
I’ve never tried making ahead. I’m sure you could. I like it best when it’s warm.
Way too sweet! It was a bit of a sticky mess and hard to scrape out of the pan. Next time I would skip the brown sugar totally, and use no more than 1/8 cup of maple sugar for the entire recipie. The point is to end up with a crisp bottom and a hint of maple, not to make bacon taffy. I also used parchment paper, which is easier to peel off of the finished product.
However… with that adjustment it really WOULD be crack!
Can you freeze this?
I’ve never tried freezing it. I’m not sure how the texture would be. If you try it, I’d love to know how it turns out.
How should this be stored? Refrigerated or not?
I would refrigerate it.
