Bacon Roses

For Valentine’s Day, I made bacon roses for that special someone.

I bought 12 strips of thick-cut bacon from the butcher on the corner. (I love the fact that there’s a butcher shop in my neighborhood.)

Then I just rubbed brown sugar on each side of the bacon strip, rolled them up, stuck two toothpicks crosswise at the bottom (fatty side down), and sat them over the holes in a muffin tin.


Then, just pop these babies in the oven at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes. The bacon grease will drip down in the holes, so the bacon doesn’t cook in them and will get all crispy on the outside.

I bought fake flowers, pulled off the flower buds and kept the stems. Then you just wait for the bacon to cool and stick them on the stems.


Surprise your guy with this bouquet, and the look on his face is like Christmas morning. Plus, you get to enjoy the delicious bacon too because who can eat all 12 anyway?
