Why give plain old roses when you can give Bacon Roses?
You know that old proverb…the fastest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach? Well, it works for women too. Show your love this Valentine’s Day with the gift that truly says “I love you”, a tasty bacon bouquet and a Big Green Egg. You will have him (or her) eating out of your hand!
The Big Green Egg is so versatile…it grills, it roasts, it smokes…and it even makes bacon roses (with a little help from you)!
Bouquet of rose stems or wooden skewers
1 pack of bacon
Instructions (courtesy of www.biggreenegg.com)
Set the EGG for indirect cooking at 350°F/177°C.
Take each slice of bacon and carefully roll it up.
Insert toothpicks in an X shape to the bottom of the bacon roll up.
Put bacon roll ups on EGG and allow them to cook until finished. Make sure the bacon isn’t too crispy.
If using real flower stems, remove the flowers from the stems carefully. You may need to use scissors. Insert half a toothpick into the top of the stem. Remove the toothpicks from the bacon roll up and insert onto stem toothpick.
If using wooden skewers, simply remove the toothpicks from the bacon roll up and insert onto skewer.
Whichever method you choose, you will likely need to use a ribbon to tie the stems/skewers together towards the top so they don’t fall over and put them in a vase or wrap.
