Bacon Roses (Man Flowers)

I wanted to make these for quite some time, but when I had bacon I forget about it and so I made them today for Valentines day for Hubby. I was thinking what to get him and I just do not know what. He has everything he needs. Last night I told him I will make a surprise for him he said that he is scared of my surprises. Because I got him a designer diaper bag for Christmas. I thought it was a useful gift he thought it was very funny. So this time I made him some roses. Because buying real ones not sure if he would like that. Here is how to make them so easy and it takes about 30 min total.

You Will Need

12 strips bacon

24 toothpicks

cooling rack

foil

baking sheet with raised edge

fake flower stems

To Prepare

preheat oven to 375 and line baking sheet with foil.

start with one end of the bacon slice and form it into a small ball. Then twist bacon and wrap around the ball keep coiling and twisting the bacon. Secure with two tooth picks. repeat until you use up all bacon.

lay them out on cooling rack. Place cooling rack on baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes until bacon is crisp. cool roses so you can handle them.
