Pin It Now!

Bacon is AWESOME!

And Bacon Salt is even more AWESOME!  Anything you use salt for you can use BACON SALT and add extra flavors.  Simplest, try some on Popcorn... Add it to baked potatoes, macaroni and cheese, seared steak—anything savory that needs a kiss of salt. Bacon truly does make it better.


Keep scrolling down for this easy to follow recipe...

OK... Here's what I did...

Homemade Bacon Salt

  • 6 Slices Thick Cut Bacon
  • 1 Cup Coarse Sea Salt
  • Big Pinch Fresh Ground Peppercorns
Cooking Directions
  1. First Step - BAKE THE BACON... Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Lay the bacon on a cookie rack, over a cookie sheet (to catch the drippings). Bake for 30 minutes (less time if you do not use thick cut bacon). The Bacon should be starting to blacken around the edges, more well done than you would usually bake bacon.
  3. Next Step - PREPARE THE BACON... Paper Towel Dry the bacon. You need to remove as much of the clingy fat as possible. Transfer the bacon to the small bowl of a Food Processor and process until well minced/ Transfer this to a dry paper towel and press again to remove even more of the clinging fat...Repeat until dried as much as possible.
  4. Next Step - MAKE THE BACON SALT... In a bowl, combine the dried minced bacon, the salt and the freshly ground peppercorns. Mix well, pressing the salt into the bacon.
  5. Next Step - STORAGE FOR THE BACON SALT... Transfer to an airtight jar and store in the refrigerator until ready to use. Date the jar. Should be used up within 4 weeks.
  6. Use anyplace you would use salt...
