INGREDIENTS
  • 4 slices smoked bacon or turkey bacon
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • Coarse ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced (about 1/2 cup)

MAKE IT
Step 1
Preheat oven to 375° F.
Step 2
Cover baking sheet with aluminum foil; lay bacon on prepared baking sheet. Brush bacon on both sides with maple syrup; sprinkle with black pepper.
Step 3
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, turning bacon over halfway through baking, or until crisp. Place bacon on paper towel lined plate to drain. Once cool, set aside 1/2 slice for garnish. Crumble or cut remaining 3 1/2 slices into 1/2-inch pieces. Set aside.
Step 4
Meanwhile, heat vegetable oil in medium skillet over medium heat. Add sliced onions and sugar. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 8 minutes or until onion is tender and caramel in color. Remove from heat to cool.
Step 5
Combine pumpkin, sour cream and salt in medium bowl until smooth. Add 3 1/2 slices of crumbled bacon and onion; stir well to combine. Crumble remaining 1/2 slice of bacon; sprinkle over top. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate. Makes about 1 1/2 cups.
Step 6
Serve with assorted mini pumpernickel or rye bread slices, crostini and/or crackers.
