Ingredients

Bouquet of rose stems or wooden skewers
1 pack of bacon
~40 toothpicks
Big Green Egg Sweet and Smoky Seasoning

Instructions

Set the Big Green Egg for indirect cooking at 350°F/177°C.

Season the bacon with the Big Green Egg Sweet and Smoky Seasoning. Take each slice of bacon and carefully roll it up.

Insert toothpicks in an X shape to the bottom of the bacon roll up.

Put bacon roll ups on EGG and allow them to cook until finished. Make sure the bacon isn’t too crispy.

If using real flower stems, remove the flowers from the stems carefully. You may need to use scissors. Insert half a toothpick into the top of the stem. Remove the toothpicks from the bacon roll up and insert onto stem toothpick.

If using wooden skewers, simply remove the toothpicks from the bacon roll up and insert onto skewer.

Whichever method you choose, you will likely need to use a ribbon to tie the stems/skewers together towards the top so they don’t fall over and put them in a vase or wrap.
