Please don’t bring me flowers…
What you need to make bacon roses:
24 strips of bacon (I prefer thick cut)
24 toothpicks (soaked in water)
24 long skewers
4 disposable muffin tins (6 compartments each)
Vase or tissue paper and ribbon
Hammer and nail
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Poke holes in muffin pan bottoms (for draining).
Place muffin pans on a baking sheet covered with foil to catch grease.
Roll individual bacon slices into “rose” shapes.
Secure with toothpicks and place one each into muffin tins.
Bake until nicely cooked (depends on your oven).
Transfer to paper towels to drain.
Gently remove toothpicks and replace (in same hole) with long skewers.
Present in a vase or bouquet to the pork lover(s) in your life.
If you have a dog, please consider sharing at least one bacon rose!
