- ½ cup brown sugar
- ½ cup water
- ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed
- 1 ½ teaspoons ground sage
- ¾ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon pepper
- 2 (1 1/2 pound) pork tenderloins
- 1 tablespoon olive oil, or as needed
Combine brown sugar, water, balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, and cornstarch in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens, 4 to 6 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking sheet.
Combine garlic, sage, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Rub garlic mixture over pork tenderloins.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Arrange tenderloins in the skillet and brown evenly, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer pork to the prepared baking sheet and brush with the balsamic glaze.
Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. Turn pork, brush again with glaze, and continue cooking until pork is slightly pink in the center, about 20 minutes more, or until desired doneness. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).
Remove tenderloin to a platter. Allow to rest for 10 minutes. Drizzle a little extra glaze over the top. Carve and serve with remaining glaze on the side.
Baked Maple Brown Sugar Bacon
That&rsquos pretty much what my mind is thinking all the time! I mean really, what&rsquos not to love about bacon on or with just about anything and everything?!
I love bacon by itself, of course, as well as in sandwiches, baked into brownies, sprinkled over a pizza, mixed into ice cream, and wait for it&hellipcrumbled over a pie. Stay tuned&hellipcoming soon! J
My favorite way to cook bacon is to bake it. Much easier and way less of a mess for me than frying it. And it turns out so perfect and crisp every time! Plus, I&rsquom usually flipping pancakes or scrambling eggs on top of the stove, so getting the bacon going in the oven first works great so that when everything else is done cooking, I can just pull this perfectly crisp bacon straight from the oven and transfer it to a platter to serve up with the rest of breakfast. It always gets rave reviews!
Be sure to use thick-cut bacon, brush it with lots of maple syrup and sprinkle it generously with dark brown sugar. And put the bacon in the oven while it preheats to cook it to the perfect crispness. Just a few tips to its terrific taste!
This is our absolute favorite bacon! We bake it all the time and as you can imagine, it disappears so fast! I&rsquove actually had to start baking two batches of it at a time to keep up with our love for it! Give it a try! I&rsquom pretty sure you and yours will love it too!

Bourbon Brown Sugar Maple Bacon Man Candy IV
Find the recipe card at the end of the post. Make sure to read the content as it contains chef tips, substitution options, answers to FAQs to help you succeed the first time around!
I know I know I know, I&rsquove been holding out you folks on the Man Candy recipes. It&rsquos funny how a single basic ingredient, bacon, can literally go viral globally. Ever since introducing the Man Candy series I have lost count on how many millions of hits these recipes have had. These Man Candy recipes have been featured on countless websites, tv shows, blogs, food shows. You&rsquove tweeted, pinned, stumbled upon, googled and fell in love. Bacon lovers united, held hands (well okay just a single hand as the other was needed to stuff this amazing Man Candy Bacon in your mouth! LOL) and praised me for these things. Men wept in joy, dogs offered up their favorite bones in exchange for a piece and a statue was erected in my honor. Okay so fine, that stuff may not be true but men did weep. LOL
Just look at how damn sexy she is&hellip
So I had been doing a ton of cooking with bourbon lately. I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE bourbon with pork and chicken. It mellows and sweetens so beautifully. Now this recipe came about while I was making breakfast for Mr. Fantabulous. See while the man says he doesn&rsquot like bacon (big fat fib there by the way!), he &ldquorequires&rdquo bacon with this breakfast every Saturday and Sunday morning. As I was cooking his bacon I was cleaning off my counter top. As I was wiping it all down, I picked up the bottle of bourbon (as I made bourbon glazed chicken the night before) and &lsquoheard&rsquo the bacon sizzle. And just like clockwork, the eye brow got raised (I went into thinking mode), the wheels starting churning and away I went.
This recipe just seemed to create itself. It was as if the ingredients had a pow-wow and said &ldquoOkay troops, gather round.. it&rsquos time to party on the bacon boat!&rdquo This baked up so amazing that literally I had to make 2 batches that day because we inhaled the first batch. Now to be fair the &lsquowe&rsquo wasn&rsquot just Mr. Fantabulous and I. We had company pop over and literally as soon as they walked in the door the first comment was &ldquoOHHHHHHHHH you have BACON. &rdquo LOL Yes, bacon is that magical!
Now I&rsquove made this recipe a ton of times and want an awesome trick with this recipe specifically? Coat one side of the bacon and wrap it around boneless chicken strips and bake! OMG! No seriously, O M G. I basted it a couple more times while the chicken baked. The flavor this infused into it was probably some of the best chicken I had ever had! Bacon and bourbon?! Dude, for real! This stuff is legit!
Sweet & Savory Apple Recipes
Fall is officially here and that means that it is time to make all the apple recipes! The obvious choice is to go the sweet route with some Apple Pie Squares or Salted Caramel Apples.
Don&rsquot rule out this amazing fall fruit for savory recipes as well though! From great dinner recipes like Apple Bourbon Pork Loin or lunches like Pomegranate Apple Chicken Salad to sides such as Spiralized Apple Cranberry Salad, its one of the most versatile fruits.
Ingredients You&rsquoll Need
- Kielbasa sausage. You can use whichever one you&rsquod like! I use the Hillshire Farm smoked, beef kielbasa rope since it&rsquos pretty easy to find at any grocery store.
- Coca-cola. You can use root beer or diet coke if that&rsquos what you have on hand.
- Brown sugar has molasses which is great for flavor and the caramelization of the kielbasa. YUM!
How to Make Brown Sugar Bacon
- Use good quality bacon. I like to use a thick cut bacon.
- Cook your bacon about half way through.
- Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and placed partially cooked bacon on sheet.
- Mix together brown sugar and water. You can add a little cinnamon if you like.
- Place in a 350 degree oven and bake until completely cooked through. Time will vary depending on the thickness of your bacon.
When you pull it out of the oven, the bacon is gooey and yummy. Let it cool and then serve to your guests. That is if you haven’t eaten it all first. This is one of those dishes that I always have to tell my kids exactly how many pieces they can eat to ensure one of them doesn’t eat it all!

How do you Make Baked Bacon?
Now, this recipe is super simple, but there are a few important things to ensure delicious results every time.
First, you must use a quality thick-cut bacon. I&rsquom currently a big fan of the Wright Brand Applewood Smoked Bacon. It&rsquos a bit more expensive, but totally worth it. That&rsquos what I&rsquom using today. However, use whatever brand you prefer: just make sure it&rsquos cut thick.
How to Make Brown Sugar Bacon Wrapped Chicken
Bacon wrapped chicken is an easy recipe with 3 simple steps:
Step 1: Make the Brown Sugar Mixture: Combine brown sugar, minced garlic, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Then rub it all over the chicken breasts.
Step 2: Wrap the Chicken with Bacon: Wrap each chicken breast with 2-4 strips of bacon. The amount of bacon depends on the size of the chicken breasts and the length of the bacon slices. Try to start and finish seam-side down with each piece to secure the bacon.
Step 3: Bake at 375°F: Place the bacon wrapped chicken into a 13 inch baking dish lined with a wire rack or a broiler pan. Bake in the middle of a 375°F oven for about 25 minutes. Turn on the convection/forced air if available. During baking spoon or baste the chicken with juices 2-3 times and rotate the pan for even cooking.
That’s it! If the bacon is not fully caramelized, you can put it under the broiler for a few minutes to finish it off. You can find more information on How Long to Bake Chicken here.
