Super Bowl Snack: Maple-Glazed Bacon Popcorn

Super Bowl Snack: Maple-Glazed Bacon Popcorn


As you all know, the Super Bowl is this Sunday. I willingly admit that I am not an avid sports enthusiast. That is probably an understatement because I’m not an enthusiast at all. For me, the super bowl is all about the food, the advertisements and a great bottle of wine all experienced in front of a nice fire.

This year I am very confused because this game is called the NY/NJ Super Bowl. For those of you who follow my blog, you know that I live in upstate New York. Here, the local sportscasters keep saying the game will be hosted by New York. The game is going to be played in New Jersey. How can two locales, albeit close in proximity, host this game? It sounds strange to me.  Again, I don’t understand sports, or is this all about money?

I’ve spouted off for too long, so now on to the good part of the game…the food. My version of Maple Glazed Bacon Popcorn was inspired by the Feb/Mar edition of Fine Cooking.
