Bacon Hearts for Valentine’s Day

Recipe: Bacon Hearts in the Oven

Summary: A simple shaped bacon heart made in the oven will charm your sweetie for Valentine’s Day.


  • 1 pound Smithfield Thick-Cut Cherrywood Smoked Bacon


  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees.Bacon Hearts in the Oven | www.ShockinglyDelicious.com [1]
  2. Small heart: To make small hearts, cut a piece of bacon in half, and arrange both pieces so they form a heart shape. The ends must touch so it doesn’t fall apart. Be sure to make the hearts on a baking sheet with short sides (so the grease doesn’t drip into the oven), or on a rack in a roasting pan.
  3. Bigger heart: To make bigger hearts, use two pieces of bacon, and do the same arranging trick.Bacon Hearts in the Oven | www.ShockinglyDelicious.com [2]
  4. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool for a minute or two before you remove from the rack, so they don’t fall apart.
  5. You may make them ahead of time, store in the refrigerator, and reheat quickly in the microwave or oven if you wish.
