19 Recipes That Prove Bacon And Maple Were Meant To Be Together

You may never eat one without the other again.

Some foods are just made for each other. Chocolate and mint, peanut butter and jelly, and bacon and maple. We're huge fans of both bacon and maple (real maple) here at HuffPost Taste, and the combination of the two is nothing short of magic.

The smoky, salty flavor of bacon cuts through the incredibly sugary maple flavor to deliver the ultimate sweet and savory combo. Bacon and maple recipes are typically decadent treats that send your sweet tooth soaring while also satisfying that need for salt. We're thinking revelations like maple bacon doughnuts or bacon pancake sandwiches smothered in real maple syrup. They can also be simpler, more subtle recipes, however, like bacon jam with maple or maple bacon baked beans.

However it comes, the maple and bacon combination is so perfect that once you try it, you may never eat bacon and maple separately again. Here are 19 bacon and maple recipes that prove these two foods were meant for each other.
