Bacon Roses

Even the men folk can appreciate a bouquet, if it is bacon roses.  I made a bacon rose bouquet for my husband on our “betrothal anniversary” one year and another one for Mother’s Day for his mother.

Bacon Roses

This is not an original idea.  I had seen other people doing bacon roses and wanted to do some for my husband.

Like all things though, we can add our own personal touch.  The bouquets I had seen either did not have any greenery, or they used fake leaves.  I did not want bacon roses on plastic leaves.  As much as possible, I like all my “food art” to be edible.  After looking at some salad greens, I decided fresh parsley looked best for a bouquet.

Roses are usually accompanied by baby’s breath flowers.  I thought for a good while before coming up with the idea to use cauliflower for the baby’s breath.

To make the bacon roses, roll raw strips of bacon up into a “rose” and place each one in a muffin tin to cook.  You may have to take them out and drain the grease half-way through cooking.  Once it has reached the desired doneness (it could take around 30 min. at 350 or so), gently stick them on a wooden skibob stick along with the pieces of cauliflower.  Arrange it with the fresh parsley leaves and surprise someone special!
