Maple Bacon Crack


Makes 8 servings
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes


  • 1 pound bacon, chopped
  • 1 (8 oz) can of crescent roll dough
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • salt, to taste (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 350°F/175°C.
      1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with a non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
      2. In a large pan over medium heat, cook the bacon halfway (about 5-7 minutes), stirring occasionally. Transfer the partially cooked bacon to a plate lined with paper towels to drain.
      3. Roll out the crescent roll dough onto the parchment paper. Pinch the seams of the dough closed to make a single sheet of dough. Use a fork to poke holes all over the dough.
      4. Drizzle half of the maple syrup over the crescent roll dough and spread it out to cover the entire surface.
      5. Top the maple syrup with brown sugar in a single layer covering the entire surface of the dough.
      6. Spread the par cooked bacon evenly over the brown sugar.
    1. Drizzle the remaining maple syrup over the top of the bacon.
    2. Bake for 20-28 minutes or until nicely browned and bubbling.
    3. Let cool completely before slicing and serving.
