Bacon Crack



  • 1 container of Pillsbury Crescent Dough Sheet..or regular Crescent Dough
  • 1 lb. Bacon..semi-crispy.  I use the microwave on high approx. 6-8 minutes, but definitely watch over it.
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Maple Syrup, may vary…just use a light layer onto the Dough, and then a light layer onto the top of the Bacon…that’s it!  
  • 1 pinch of Cayenne Pepper..optional, but AMAZING!


  1. Lay out the dough spread out thinly, on a parchment lined baking sheet.  With a fork, gently poke shallow holes throughout the dough.
  2. Top the dough with a thin layer of Maple Syrup, and all the crispy Bacon.  
  3. Now add another thin layer of the Syrup onto the Bacon and cover it with all of the Brown Sugar/Cayenne Pepper mix.
  4. Bake it at 325 degrees for about 25 minutes or until evenly golden.
