How To Make Bacon Roses


Steer Clear Of Boring This Valentine's Day

Skip the traditional dozen and make your special someone a bouquet of wood-fired bacon roses. The way to someone’s heart is through their stomach, and nothing says love quite like bacon. Wow your Valentine and check out our simple step-by-step below.


  • 1-2 Packages of Bacon (we also welcome bigger bouquets)
  • Muffin Pan
  • Fake/Real Roses
  • Toothpicks

STEP 1. Grab your favorite kind of bacon at your local butcher or grocery store. Remove the bacon strips from the package and tightly roll them starting from one end to the other and place them standing up in a muffin pan.


STEP 2. Start the Traeger grill on smoke with the lid open until fire is established (4-5 minutes). Set the temperature to 375 degrees F and preheat, lid closed 10-15 minutes. Place the pan on the grill for 30 minutes.


STEP 3. While the bacon is cooking, take your real or fake roses and gently tear the roses from the stem.


STEP 4. Place a toothpick down directly into the middle of the stem (as shown). If you’re using fake roses, simply use the existing stem.


STEP 5. Remove the bacon from the grill, place them on top of each stem.


It’s THAT simple. Take your love to the next level and present your savory bouquet to your special someone. Your Valentine’s is guaranteed to be smokin’.
