Bacon continues to be one of the hottest sweet-savory flavors around. You know when it shows up in vodka, it’s gone mainstream and is no longer a fad.
Michael Jordan’s Steak House offers a delicious Double Smoked Bacon appetizer made with
Neuske’s brand bacon. Nueske’s is a family buisness that began in 1933 in northern Wisconsin and is known for selling select meats with just the right combination of leanness and tenderness, perfected spice blends and curing.
This recipe for Neuske’s Double-Smoked Bacon is another in our series shared by Chef Kyle Beausoleil of
Michael Jordan’s Steak House, located in the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut.
Because he’s in Connecticut, Chef uses Connecticut Maple Syrup in his recipe as well.

Place all ingredients in a sauce pan and bring to a slow boil. Reduce heat to low simmer and allow sauce to reduce by half. Strain and Cool.
Cut bacon into 2.5 ounce portions.
Cook on sheet pan with baking rack in the oven at 275 degrees F for 2.5 hours.
Remove from oven and set aside.
Sear each portion of bacon until slightly crisp on both sides; four pieces to a serving.
Toss the seared bacon in the Maple Glaze. Place under broiler for about 1 minute for each side or until the glaze caramelizes.
Shingle each piece on a plate and finish with fresh cracked pepper.
