  • 3 tablespoons bacon grease
  • 3/4 cup popcorn kernels
  • 8 thick bacon slices
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter


  • Cook bacon. When finished cooking, transfer the bacon to a paper towel lined plate. Crumble the bacon into small bite size pieces. Reserve 3 T. of the bacon grease. Set bacon grease aside. 
  • In a LARGE pot set over medium heat, add the bacon grease. Once the bacon grease is warm, add the popcorn kernels to the pot. Cover the pot with a lid. 
  • When you hear the kernels begin to pop, shake the pot. (Do so carefully)!! Do this every 20 seconds or so, until done cooking. About 7 minutes or until most of the kernels have successfully popped. 
  • When popcorn has finished popping transfer the popped popcorn to a large bowl. 
  • In a small bowl combine crumbled bacon, maple syrup, and melted butter. Mix to combine. Pour overtop the popped popcorn. Season the popcorn with salt to taste. 


*Make sure you use a LARGE pot when popping the popcorn kernels.
