Bacon and Maple Paczki!
Tuesday was Paczki Day here in Detroit.  For those outside of the midwest, paczki are basically filled doughnuts.  They have a more traditional meaning, but that’s not the focus here.  
We sampled paczki filled with liquor, which were quite good.  The highlight, however, was the Pig candy and maple paczek (by @joefoodie) from Lazybone’s Smokehouse in Roseville.
Pig candy is smoked bacon coated in brown sugar.  It’s sweet, salty, and peppery.  A perfect food.  The maple glaze was super sugary, but worked well against the bacon.  The paczek was not filled with anything, which goes against tradition but so does candied bacon.  I’d definitely eat this again.
