Happy Valentine’s Day! Bacon Salt

I know, right~  I mean really, Bacon Salt???


When I saw this recipe, it fit right in with the “bacon/man-food” type theme I had going on for my son’s Valentine birthday, so I had to make some


You can whip up a batch today in a matter of minutes if you need a last minute man pleaser!


Throw some bacon on a sheet of parchment on a baking sheet and put it in the oven for about 25 minutes at 350~

go sing in the shower or something and when you come back it’s just a matter of a few pulses in the food processor






add coarse sea salt

and make someone happy!


Sprinkle it on eggs, potatoes, vegetables, anything that you would normally salt and enjoy a bacon flavor with it


Here’s the dealio~


Prep Time 35 minutes
Course condiment
Cuisine American


  • 6-8 slices Maple Bacon
  • 1/2 cup coarse sea salt


  • Cook bacon until uniformly crisp. The best method for this is on a parchment lined baking sheet in a 325-350 oven. Cooking time will vary so check often near the end. Drain well and discard any part that is underdone or burnt. Pulse in food processor until bacon is small crumbs. Add salt. Pulse a few times to mix. Store in a jar in refrigerator. Date jar, and use within 1 month. Makes about 3/4 cup.

    Your bacon salt would be a huge hit around here! Happy Valentine’s Day! 🙂

  5. I happened upon your blog via Chris at The Cafe Sucre Farine and I’m so glad I did! What a great Valentine gift for a guy. And I can think of a million savory uses for this. But I have to tell you, what I’m really thinking about is how to incorporate it into my sweet baking! Thanks for sharing such a fabulous idea!

    • Thanks Anne! Using bacon salt in your sweets is an awesome idea! Make sure you pulse it down a bit because the coarse sea salt is so much larger than Kosher salt and it’s very salty~or just use Kosher salt.
