Bacon Hearts

Today’s recipe is so involved, so difficult, so time-consuming you might want to run for the hills right now.

Just kidding!

This is so easy, you can do it with one eye closed.

Like I did.

Because it was way too early in the morning.

I made these Bacon Hearts for Captain Cavedweller for Valentine’s Day. I don’t know if he appreciated them or just the fact he had hot, crispy bacon at 6 a.m. on a workday.

Whatever the case, his grunts of approval let me know he liked the bacon at any rate.

Start with some bacon. Thick sliced is best.

Line a baking sheet with foil. This will keep you from having to scrub bacon grease off the pan when you still aren't sure you are completely awake. Go ahead and preheat your oven to 425 degrees.

Place bacon on the baking pan so the ends form the top of the heart and squeeze the middle of the bacon together to make the bottom point.

 

Use toothpicks to hold the ends and the bottom point together.

Bake at 425 for 8-12 minutes, depending on how crispy you like your bacon. Remove from oven, take out toothpicks and serve!

Captain Cavedweller got his heart bacon on top of hash brown casserole with a side of homemade raspberry danish.  I may have had some, too.

BLT Wrap

BLT Wrap

Here is a quick and simple wrap you can make for lunch, dinner or cut into bite-sized pieces for an appetizer.

It is yummy and easy. And we won’t talk about calories. We just won’t!

Ingredients for the BLT Wrap

Chop or crumble your bacon into bite-sized pieces

Chop or slice tomatoes. I used cherry tomatoes and thinly sliced them.

Start layering ingredients in your tortilla.

Looks pretty tasty, doesn't it?

BLT Wrap

flour tortillas

shredded colby-jack cheese

sliced olives

bacon

tomatoes

lettuce

ranch dressing

I did not give specific measurements because you will assembly each one individually and can alter your amounts to your desire. For this particular wrap I used medium-size tortillas, two strips of bacon, a heaping tablespoon of cheese, three cherry tomatoes, a teaspoon of olive slices, a half-teaspoon of ranch dressing and a few small pieces of lettuce.

Cook your bacon. When it is nice and crisp, let cool then crumble. Line it up in the center of the tortilla. Top with tomatoes, lettuce, cheese, olives and dressing. Roll up and enjoy!

See, I told you it was simple and easy.

Happy Entertaining!
