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

Here’s the dealio~

BACON SALT  for a printable version click here

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.

Now if you really want to rock someone’s world, make some Bacon Jam  to go along with it!
