Candied Maple Bacon Donut Kabobs

Donuts are all the craze right now. Every where you turn there are donuts…donut crafts, donut parties and gourmet donuts. Speaking of gourmet donuts, maple bacon donuts are becoming a serious trend setters. Today I’m bringing you my version of this popular donut treat, Candied Maple Bacon Donut Kabobs. Plus, I’m sharing a free printable tag to help you create a tasty Father’s Day breakfast that dad will love!

My hubby isn’t a big donut fan, but he recently ordered a gourmet maple bacon donut from a new donut shop in town and loved it.  I can see why it was a favorite, the combination of sweet maple syrup and crispy bacon is an undeniably mouthwatering pairing.  Of course, I don’t think you can ever go wrong with bacon!  

I thought it would be fun to recreate this breakfast power duo for him on Father’s Day, but I didn’t want the hassle of baking donuts from scratch.  Instead I decided to create a simpler, but still extraordinary, version with these Candied Maple Bacon Donut Kabobs.

What You Will Need: 

Step 1: 

Start by making the candied maple bacon.  Line a baking sheet with foil and place the bacon on top of a wire baking rack.

Step 2: 

Use a pastry brush to liberally brush the bacon with maple syrup.

Step 3: 

Sprinkle the bacon with brown sugar and place in the preheated 400 degree oven.  Bake for 15 minutes, flip the bacon and repeat steps 1 and 2, bake for another 10-15 minutes or until the bacon reaches the desired level of crispiness. 

Step 4: 

Use a wooden skewer to alternate the donut holes and pieces of crispy candied maple bacon.
