Paleo Valentine Bacon Roses -

Paleo Valentine’s Strawberry Bacon Roses


  • 12 pieces bacon
  • ~12 fresh strawberries


  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Loosely cover a 12-cup muffin tin with tinfoil, pressing down to dimple the foil into each cup, and using a toothpick, stab a couple drainage holes in the bottom of each dimple.
  3. Slice strawberries as thinly as possible.
  4. Lay a strip of bacon down with the fat-side down.
  5. Spread strawberry slices along the top edge of the bacon, leaving about 1/2 an inch on each end uncovered.
  6. Squeeze a thin strip of chocolate balsamic reduction over the strawberries (too much will just make a huge mess and drip out the bottom).
  7. Starting rolling the bacon at one around a toothpick as tightly as you are able (be sure that the strawberry slices do not get squeezed out).
  8. Stand each roll upright in it’s own tinfoil dimple, the toothpick stabbing through the tinfoil. Press the roll down the toothpick so that it sits against the tinfoil.
  9. Bake for 45 minutes.
  10. Allow to cool enough to handle. If you want to create a bouquet, replace the toothpicks with longer bamboo skewers and arrange in some greenery (this is where your creativity comes in).
  11. Serve with the balsamic reduction bottle so that another little squirt can be added to the rose just prior to eating.
  12. Enjoy, and share the love with others!
