1 x pack Thick cut bacon
1 x bunch fake roses
- Preheat oven to 375f/190c
- Start by tearing off the flower petals until you’re left with a bare, empty stem. If possible, push the calyx down the stem to reveal a little more of a wire/stem for the bacon roll to sit on.
- Take a strip of bacon, and starting at one end, roll it up tightly to form a rosette. Secure the roll with two toothpicks, as close to the bottom of one end as you can, to form a cross. Place the rose on a wire rack on top of a foil lined tray. Repeat with all the bacon.
- Place tray of bacon rolls into the oven, and bake 45-55 minutes, until they are well cooked and have a good color. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
- Once cool, take each roll and wiggle it onto a stem. Repeat until the whole bunch is complete.
- Give it to someone you love, or sit there and eat them yourself!
For the best results, look for fake roses that has a larger and higher calyx (the green part that cradles the rose), because this will hold the bacon in place a little better.
