  • 6 thick-cut strips bacon, stacked and quartered crosswise (24 pieces)

  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 pound sharp cheddar cheese, cut into 24 small cubes
  1. In a medium skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat until cooked through but not crisp, about 6 minutes; drain on paper towels.
