Baked Bacon Roses


1 package of thick cut sliced bacon


Wooden Skewers

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 roll with a toothpick and place on a cookie sheet. Repeat for 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 base of skewer, gently slide spinach leaves over the pointy end of the skewer. Use a couple of leaves per skewer. Carefully, insert pointy end of skewer into the bottom of the bud to create at “rose stem.”
