So…. I made Pumpkin Glazed Bacon, because I could! Seriously, no other reason other than I thought it sounded good, and it is!
How do I make pumpkin bacon?
All you need is pumpkin puree (NOT pumpkin pie puree), sweetened condensed milk, pumpkin pie spice, and of course the bacon. Mix the pumpkin puree, condensed milk and pumpkin pie spice together, and then brush each piece of bacon with the mixture. Bake for ten minutes at 375 F, turn the bacon, brush again, and continue baking until desired crispness.
How to serve this bacon
I have to be honest, we ate it for breakfast for dinner, twice, but it’s great crumbled on top of Pumpkin Soup or as an addition to Pumpkin Manicotti. You could even freeze it and then reheat it in a pan quickly, that way you can have it all year long. You’re going to want to, I do!

- 8 ounces smoked bacon
- 1/3 cup pumpkin puree
- 3 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
- 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (or more if desired)
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking pan with aluminium foil.
- In a small bowl combine the pumpkin puree, sweetened condensed milk, and 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice. Taste and add more pumpkin pie spice if desired. Lay the bacon out on the baking pan without overlapping. Use a basting brush to evenly brush the tops of the bacon with the pumpkin puree mixture. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes.
- Turn the bacon, and brush the tops with the remainder of the pumpkin puree mixture. Return to the oven for 8-10 minutes, or to desired crispness. Drain on paper towels before serving.
