Executive Producer Cara Sabin's Bacon Roses Bouquet
Two packs of thick sliced bacon (I prefer Fishers)
Foil Muffin Pan
Large, deep rectangular pan (larger than a cooling rack)
Set oven 350 degrees.
Put cooling rack into a a large deep pan.
Poke holes in the bottom of the foil muffin pans, so the bacon grease can drain.
Place foil muffin tins on cooling rack.
Roll the bacon into rosettes making sure to make the center a little higher, so the shape is more of a cone.
Bake until brown and crispy.
Two packs of thick cut bacon made 18 roses.
Note: This makes a MESS of your oven with all the popping bacon grease.
Use a cheap bouquet of roses. I bought mine for $4 at a discount store. Remove the silk rose leaving the green leaf that supports the flower.
Push the plastic piece further down to expose extra wire.
Get a large vase and fill with pebbles or those glass rocks.
Put the "empty" rose bouquets into the vase.
Once the bacon roses have cooled and drained on paper towels, just slide them on to the exposed wires at the end of the rose stems.
Dab with a small amount of syrup for shine.
Nothing says "I love you" like BACON!
