    So I actually bought and tried maple syrup for the first time, and so far, I've only used it as if I was using honey - on toast or other bread. I've heard that it's synonymous with pancakes, but would any other user like to recommend other dishes it goes well with?

    Besides bacon and sausage, you can also make some mighty tasty pork chops with maple syrup.

    EDIT: FWIW there are many, many grades of maple syrup. I'm partial to the lightest of the bunch, sometimes called "fancy" or "light amber"

    Hash browns, or Latkes. If you are neither Jewish nor a Vegetarian, then I have heard rashers of crispy bacon.

    I've never actually imagined meat with sweets....and come to think of it, I have bacon at home right now...

    Maybe I'll give that a shot...

    I bought the one Kirkland makes for Costco. It's my first time ever, so the next time I buy, I'll look for a different brand :)

    I prefer those with jam and powdered sugar myself. The lemon/cardamom clashes with the maple for me, or maybe the ones we get from Trader Joes are too heavy on the lemon/cardamom.
    Sounds like you've probably got syrup to last a year unless you have a large family. ;)

    Baked beans. Maple syrup and sweet vidalia onions make an awesome pan of beans. In a pinch, you could also use honey or molasses.

    I'm making 4 strips of bacon, 2 eggs over easy, and 2 pancakes this morning. Got real maple syrup from Costco to smother it in. :) Can't wait!

    Traditionally, pancakes and waffles have been the usual accompaniment when partnered with maple syrup. However, bacon and any pork dish (even sausages) would all go well with it, too. Chicken, too.

    Any meat that can take a sweet tasting side dish (as chicken, bacon, ham and pork can) will go will go well with maple syrup. The poster (ejb190) who suggested fried apples was inspired; myself, I'd consider baking the apples and adding maple syrup.

    I think pretty much anything you would eat for breakfast that is not cold (like cereal) is a candidate for syrup.
