  • Wisconsin BLT
  • Ingredients
    • 12 slices bacon
    • ¼ cup maple syrup
    • Freshly ground black pepper

    1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Place a wire rack on a rimmed baking sheet. Lay bacon in a single layer on the rack and bake for 5 minutes. Brush with maple syrup and continue baking for 5 minutes. Flip bacon, brush with syrup and season with pepper every 5 minutes. Repeat until bacon is caramelized, about 20-25 minutes. 1. While bacon is baking, toast the bread. 1. Spread 1 Tbsp. of mayonnaise on two slices of bread. Top one piece of bread with a slice of cheddar. Top the other slice of bread with 3 slices of maple pepper bacon, 2 tomato slices and 2 pieces of lettuce. Repeat with remaining bread. Set sandwich halves aside. 1.

Close sandwich and enjoy!
