In 1996, I bought a cookbook from a friend whose son was graduating from high school.  It was a compilation of recipes from great home cooks and was sold as a fundraiser for the Class of '96.

The name of the cookbook is Ballard Memorial High School, Project Graduation "96".   

This recipe for Maple Bacon was one of the recipes that my friend contributed to the cookbook.

I had looked at this recipe several times over the years, but I had never made it.  But guess what??  I finally did, and I am glad I did.  It was sooo good!!

It makes a 9 x 13 pan, which makes it great to make and take, or if you are having breakfast or brunch for a group, it is the perfect size.


Maple Bacon

1-1/2 cups Bisquick
1-1/2 cups cheddar cheese
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tablespoon sugar
2 eggs
8 slices of bacon, crumbled

Spray a 9 x 13 pan with Canola Oil.  In a mixing bowl mix Bisquick, 1/2 of cheese, milk, syrup, eggs, and sugar with a fork until small lumps remain.  Pour into pan and bake uncovered 10 - 15 minutes at 350 degrees F.  Sprinkle remaining cheese and bacon on top and then return to oven and bake until cheese is melted.  Serve with warm maple syrup.

(The original recipe calls for 12 - 15 slices of bacon; however, I only used 8.)

(I also think you could make this with any pancake mix, and I will probably try that the next time I make it.)
