Author: Christina Hitchcock


  • 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.

Helpful Tips for All Recipes
  • When a recipe call for House Seasoning Blend, you can find the recipe on www.itisakeeper.com. Simply search for "House Seasoning Blend" or you can substitute salt and pepper to taste.  
  • I always use unsalted butter in my recipes.
  • I always use a meat thermometor to test for doneness when cooking meat.
  • When a recipe is made in the oven, it should be pre-heated to the temperature in the recipe, unless otherwise noted.
