Bacon Maple Butter Recipe: A Chef Shares Her Indulgent 4-Ingredient Sweet Bacon Butter Recipe

Bacon maple butter is delicious on just about anything, from biscuits to chicken to a good grilled steak. (Insert big, happy sigh.)

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound unsalted butter, cut into 1-inch pieces and frozen
  • 4 strips bacon, cooked crisp
  • 1 tablespoon reserved bacon fat (optional)
  • 1 1/2 cups maple syrup

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Add the maple syrup and cook without stirring on medium heat until syrup reaches 235 degrees F, about 8 to 10 minutes. (When the syrup begins to boil gently, tilt the pan so the syrup covers the thermometer bulb to get an accurate reading.)
  2. Remove the syrup from heat and add the frozen butter one to two pieces at a time. Stir constantly with a wooden spoon until all butter is incorporated.
  3. Add the bacon fat, if using.
  4. Pour the syrup into the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat until light in color, about 10 to 15 minutes.
  5. Gently crumble the cooked bacon and fold in. Pour the maple butter into clean mason jars. Allow to cool. The bacon-maple butter can be stored up to two weeks in the fridge or 6 months in the freezer.

Variation: Add 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and for a spicy finish, add 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper. Or both! You decide.
