If I could jump up and down with excitement telling you about this recipe I would! These drool worthy strips of sweet and salty bacon are heaven sent. I’ve partnered with Smucker’s to bring you simple recipes that use their amazing jams and preserves.

You won’t believe how simple this recipe is!


If you haven’t tried Smucker’s Orchard’s Finest Lakeside Raspberry Cranberry Preserves you’ve got to! Sooo good. Be sure to visit Smucker’s on Facebook and their Perfect Pairings Board on Pinterest.

I love pairing cheeses, crackers and nuts with a little bowl of my favorite Smucker’s preserves for dipping. I also love serving pita wedges with peanut butter and Smucker’s preserves ย for a midday and or after school snack.

Candied Raspberry Baked Bacon

Take 1 pound of cooked bacon strips (I used the microwave ready bacon strips) and brush each lightly with your preserves then sprinkle lightly with brown sugar. Place in the oven and let the magic happen!

    LOVE Smucker’s jam! And this is probably the most creative way I’ve ever seen jam made into a recipe! Candied bacon – definitely need to try this. Pinning!

    Baked bacon is the best. I’ll have to try it with jam.

    What brand of precooked bacon strip did you use? The ones I previously have tried would not make it past 5 minutes in an oven at 400ยฐ without burning as they are so tissue thin. This recipe sounds really good but not so good for my diet. But I can cheat every now and then. Thanks for sharing.

    Well, this bacon just made today an 11/10 situation. So much goodness!

    Um this is amazing! I love the raspberry!

    I am salivating just thinking about this bacon. I’ll bet it would be awesome crumbled over a melted Brie crostini.

    I once made candied maple bacon and quite enjoyed it so I ate the entire batch before it had even cooled. I didn’t feel the best after that so I cured myself of a candied bacon addiction really, really quickly. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I still want to try this, though! Love it. ๐Ÿ™‚
