A fun (and tasty) alternative to roses for Valentines Day!

I loved the ideas for roses made out of bacon this year for V day. I think real roses are boring, and I don't generally like sticking my face in dying plant genitals anyhow. Especially for a "holiday" that's supposed to be sexy and romantic. Why not stuff your face full of piggy roses instead?! Sooo I love this idea by Ferochia. I changed it up a bit by not drilling holes in my much-loved muffin tin. Yeah. I wanted to keep using it for things in the years to come - so no holes in it for me. A simple replacement are toothpicks, which keep the bacon rolls elevated above the bottom of the muffin tin.
Enjoy!
Preliminary steps included de-budding the fake flowers and then putting the sepals back on. Some of mine were a bit floppy so I hot glued them in place. Leave enough of the stick bit to screw the bacon roll onto when they are done cooking.

Recipe

  1. Step 1 1

    First thaw your bacon.

  2. Step 2 2

    Then begin rolling it as tightly as possible.

  3. Step 3 3

    This is what it will look like.

  4. Step 4 4

    Then skewer the bacon roll with a toothpick.

  5. Step 5 5

    Create an X using two toothpicks. Center them in the bacon roll.

  6. Step 6 6

    Place them in the muffin tin. They won't be very sturdy, but if you are careful they won't flop over.

  7. Step 7 7

    Bake at 350-400 degrees for 35-40 minutes. I had potatoes going at the same time so the time/temp may vary slightly.




  8. Step 8 8

    Here they are, the untouchable grease drippings not touching the now crispy bacon rolls.

  9. Step 9 9

    Almost perfect!

  10. Step 10 10

    Remove the toothpicks and blot with paper towels to remove more of the grease.

  11. Step 11 11

    Then, carefully screw them onto the flower stems and snug them into the sepals. This part was a pain. Th bacon rolls are greasy and the stems get greasy too. But have some patience. This part is the most annoying but it's the last!

  12. Step 12 12

    Serve! Hopefully whomever you gave these to bowed down and worshipped you ;)
