If you are like me, you get inspired to make new dishes by what you see on cooking shows. My idea for making Maple Bacon Butter came from a recent episode of  Burgers, Brew and ‘Que on the Food Network.

The host, Michael Symon visited the Incline Public House in Cincinnati, Ohio  to see what was cooking. One of their famous dishes is a Serrano Chili Waffle with Cajun Fried Chicken that is  served with Maple Bacon Butter.  Whoa! Is that an unbelievable flavor combination or what? The next time I go to Cincinnati, ( my IKEA is there) I am going to the restaurant for the real thing, and see how close I came with my own Maple Bacon Butter recipe.

Making the Maple Bacon Butter was pretty simple, just getting the right amount of maple syrup was the challenge. Even though the bacon pieces add a smoky flavor and crunch, the butter needed more bacon flavor. Just 1 tablespoon of bacon grease added the right amount of smoke to the butter.
