Brown Sugar Bacon Party Bites

8 slices thick-cut bacon
3 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons brown sugar
Freshly ground black pepper
¼ cup mild grated cheddar cheese
½ cup grated Gruyere cheese
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
¼ cup mayonnaise
2 scallions, trimmed and chopped fine
1 whole grain baguette

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. For the bacon, place a wire rack inside a large baking sheet and arrange bacon slices in a single layer. Bake until bacon begins to brown, about 15 to 20 minutes. During the final few minutes of cooking, remove the pan from oven and drizzle a little brown sugar and maple syrup over each bacon slice. Sprinkle with pepper.

Bake until sugar caramelizes and bacon is golden brown and crispy, about 5 minutes. Transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined platter to cool. Crumble bacon, reserving some crumbles for garnish. Sprinkle with pepper.

Slice baguette at an angle into ½ inch slices.

In a bowl, combine bacon, cheeses, mayonnaise and scallions. Spread on bread slices and place on a large baking sheet.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake until toasts are golden brown and bubbly, about 15 to 20 minutes.
