    I don't know about Pennsylvania Dutch. My mom has always made it *upgrade on the bacon through the years* and she was born/raised in West Virginia and moved to Florida in her early twenties. We kind of upped the ante on the bacon with the glaze and sugar, everything she used on a baked ham. We like it on ham and we were thrilled with what it did to the bacon. But, please please use a thick cut. Paper thin bacon will burn unbelievably and will only taste charred.

    Isn't this a Pennsylvania Dutch secret?!?! My mom would tell me about it and I couldn't believe it! I've not yet tried it myself, but I think I'll try this one and surprise my mom :)

    Yum! One of my favorite ways to make bacon is baked with maple syrup brushed on. I can't wait to try it this way :)
