15089 Bacon Roses
Rachael Ray Show


  • Bacon slices (regular or turkey)
  • Toothpicks
  • Skewers
  • Spinach leaves
  • Uncooked rice (optional)


Preheat oven to 400˚F.

Working with 1 slice of bacon at a time, begin rolling up the bacon, but make every layer a little lower than the previous layer, so that the center of the "rose" is a little higher. At the end of the bacon strip, flip the end over to mimic a rose petal, then thread the bacon rose with a toothpick to keep its shape. Stand the skewered bacon rose in a muffin tin, and repeat with remaining bacon and toothpicks.

Bake the bacon until crisp, 10 to 20 minutes, depending on desired level of crispness.

Remove the toothpicks. Cross 2 spinach leaves and thread onto a skewer to make "rose leaves", then thread through the bottom of a bacon rose. Repeat with the remaining spinach leaves, bacon roses and skewers.

If desired, stand and arrange the bacon roses in a jar filled with rice.
