  • 1/2 pound bacon (cut in half)

Steps to Make It

  1. Cut the bacon strips in half.

  2. Place parchment paper on a baking sheet. Preheat the oven to 425 F.

  3. Form two halves together into a heart shape, making sure they overlap generously as the bacon will shrink upon baking. 

  4. Bake the bacon for about 10 minutes or until slightly brown and crispy. 

  5. Lift off the bacon and place on a plate along with some eggs and toast!
