Bacon Roses are a yummy twist on the traditional Rose Bouquet gift!

For a fun little bonus video, I thought I would show you how I perfected the really clever Bacon Roses seen on Pinterest with a couple extra special touches.

The ingredients are simply Bacon and Brown Sugar. I am using 40% less fat bacon. I wanted to make sure the bacon was fatty enough for the swirl of color, but keep it as healthy as possible. Then we also use wood skewers and toothpicks.

This is a sure-fired HIT to surprise the loved ones in your life.

RECIPE INSTRUCTIONS FOR BACON ROSES

Set your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

INGREDIENTS: Bacon & Brown Sugar.

MATERIALS: Skewers, Tooth Picks, Muffin Tin, Vase

Begin by threading your bacon though your skewer on one end, then roll up tightly about one-third of the way.

Now, here’s my special twist to really help our Bacon Roses look like Roses. We simply twist our bacon strip clockwise to make the rose petals easily form little points.

Then secure with a toothpick or two on the bottom of your rose. Continue rolling the rest of your bacon roses, then place them in a muffin tin. This is my favorite way to bake them.

Your Rose Buds remain standing upward and enjoy baking in their own juices. Oh, one more special ingredient is to sprinkle them with a pinch of brown sugar. The sugar crystalizes and melts into your bacon. This makes them extra delicious and sweet, just like a Rose! Then bake for 20 minutes!

MMMMM….Bacon!

So, once they have cooled, place them on your skewers and create your bouquet. I like using mason and milk jars as vases.

I hope you enjoyed my first little cooking video and are inspired to whip up some Bacon Roses yourself.

BACON ROSES ARE MAGICAL!
