What you will need
  1. 1 package of bacon of your choice with at least 12 slices
  2. 12 count mini muffin tin
  3. 12 plastic rose stems (I get mine at the dollar tree. A bunch of 6 for $1)
  4. Parchment, wax, or butcher paper
  5. Wire cutters
  6. Vase
  7. Cello bags with twist ties
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375.Lay the paper on your working space.
  2. Open package of bacon.
  3. Take 1 bacon strip and lay it on your paper.
  4. Roll the piece of bacon into a spiral.
  5. The center should stick out a little further than the rest.
  6. Place into non greased muffin tin.
  7. Repeat till you fill up the tin or run out of bacon.
  8. Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until desired crispness.
  9. While the bacon is cooking you can start to prepare your rose stems.
  10. If you got the ones from the Dollar Tree they are pretty easy to take apart.Separate the rose petals from the stem but keep the green pieces that hold the petals to the stem. It kind of looks like a rivet or screw.
  11. Cut the stems with the wire cutters.
  12. By now the bacon should be ready to take out of the oven.
  13. Take one bacon rose and a rose stem.
  14. Put bacon rose on the stem and put the plastic pin through the bacon rose and onto the stem. You may need to play around to get it in the correct position.Repeat for the rest of the bouquet.

The journey down the bacon paved path began with a Valentine Bake Sale at work. Bacon Roses, Bacon Chocolates; and the deluge of Bacon Recipes began. So. Gotta blog all these good bacon scrumptiousnesses and this is just the beginning. The plan is to update the Geeky Food Blog with new recipes and articles of interest.
