200 g

Eskort Lean Diced Bacon

250 g


250 g

pecan nuts

10 ml

ground cinnamon

150 g


1 roll

phyllo pastry sheets (about 10 sheets, cut in half)

375 g


250 ml

maple syrup

125 ml


30 ml



zest of half an orange


  • Preheat oven to 180°C.

  • In a frying pan, cook bacon until crisp, remove from heat and drain oil. 

  • Add bacon, almonds, walnuts and cinnamon to a blender and pulse until finely chopped.

  • Brush a baking tray large enough to fit phyllo pastry sheets, with a little of the melted butter.

  • Unroll phyllo pastry and place a sheet on the buttered baking tray, brush the sheet of phyllo with some melted butter, repeat the process with 5 sheets of phyllo pastry.

  • (Keep your remaining phyllo pastry sheets covered with a damp dishcloth to prevent them from drying out).

  • Sprinkle the phyllo pastry sheets in the baking tray with about 1/3 of the bacon and nut crumbs, repeat with another 5 layers of phyllo (each buttered as per process before) and top with another third of the bacon and nut crumble.

  • Repeat layers once more.

  • Top with remaining sheets of phyllo, brushing each one with melted butter.

  • Using a sharp knife, cut pastry into diamond shapes while on the baking tray, you should get about 24 pieces.

  • Place in oven and bake for 30-35 minutes, until golden brown. 

  • While baklava is baking, put maple syrup, water, brandy and orange zest into a small saucepan.

  • Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes until you get a light syrupy consistency.

  • Remove from heat and set aside. Remove baklava from oven when done, and while still warm, drizzle evenly with the syrupy mixture.

  • Cool baklava completely before serving.
