Bacon Hearts

Bacon shaped into hearts

We don’t go breakin’ hearts, we go bacon hearts! Add some TLC to this breakfast staple with these heart shaped bacon pieces. An easy and delicious way to show some love!

What you’ll need:

Bacon

Baking sheet

Toothpicks (optional)

Instructions:

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

Choose a baking sheet with edges, or line it with aluminum foil to prevent the grease from leaking.

Cut your bacon slices into two halves. Use two of the cut pieces to shape them into a heart and place them on the baking sheet. If you prefer a thicker cut of bacon, fold the pieces in half long ways instead of cutting them and use those two pieces to shape a larger heart.

If you’re worried about them falling apart, use toothpicks to hold the pieces together as they cook.

Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or to your desired crispness.

Serve with love.
