Bacon of Hearts

- 12 slices of bacon (this wont work with stiff bacon, it sorta needs to be loose and floppy. Ha!)

- … that’s it!

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400. Cut your bacon slices in half. Using two pieces of the cut in half bacon… shape them into a heart on a sheet pan (make sure this pan has sides so the grease doesn’t get all over your oven!). Bake for 18 – 25 minutes (or until done). Serve on a fancy plate or a pretty box and share with your loved one. Extra credit if you dip the bacon in chocolate! Yum!

Above is what I had waiting for Mike when he got home from work… a glass of wine, a card from Ruari, a smelly candle, some cheap chocolate and an amazing bacon heart! Ha ha. Mike made VERY yummy steak with blue cheese, rice, and salad (topped with a bacon heart) for me for Valentine’s day… along with some ice cream sandwiches. Valentine’s on a budget! Perfect. I hope you all enjoyed your day! Whether you celebrate Valentine’s or not.

Side note awesome: Dip these bad boys into some chocolate. Yes. Chocolate covered heart bacon.
