Camila's Baked Bacon Roses


  • Toothpicks
  • Wooden Skewers


  • 1 package of thick-cut sliced bacon
  • Fresh Spinach leaves or another leafy green Mix green salad will do too!


  • Preheat over to 400 degrees F. Roll one piece of sliced bacon into a tight roll.
  • Secure the roll with a toothpick and place it on a cookie sheet. Repeat for the desired number of “rose buds.” Bake the secured bacon rolls on a cookie sheet for 10 minutes.
  • Once cooled enough to the touch, hold the bud shape and gently remove the toothpick(s). 
  • Holding the base of the skewer, gently slide spinach leaves over the pointy end of the skewer, using a couple of leaves per skewer. Carefully insert the pointy end of the skewer into the bottom of the bud to create a “rose stem.”
  • Arrange into a bouquet or simply place “buds” on a plate and garnish with lettuce.
