Maple syrup flavoured bacon and spam salad

Maple syrup flavoured bacon is a well known flavour combination, especially with pancakes, waffles or French toast. 

What about adding maple syrup to spam? 

I like a salad that has a little sweetness to it and tonight the only ‘dressing’ was some lemon juice and the cooking ‘juices’ from the oven cooked spam and bacon.

I really like the photograph. The colours came out nicely of the maple syrup flavoured bacon and spam salad. I did a bit of retouching in Adobe Lightroom.

If you click on the image you will be taken to an attachment page. Under the image on that page if you click on 2048 × 2048 you’ll be brought to the original image. Now if you have a nice big monitor, if you click once more on that image you’ll see a full resolution version and the detail is lovely.
