How to Make Bacon Salt

Bacon SaltAhh I love bacon…OK, only on occasion and primarily to add flavor to dishes like pancake syrup (yes, seriously!) and homemade gelato (yes, seriously!!). My bacon salt recipe is one of Wishful Chef’s most popular posts, and I think for good reason. It’s easy to make and allows you to have a little taste of bacon on things like chips, popcorn, tater tots or even cookies! Just in time for Superbowl Sunday!

If you love the taste of bacon and wish everything tasted like it, then this recipe is for you! Bacon salt is a simple seasoning that can bring so much flavor to a dish. And sorry to mislead you with the title but I actually used prosciutto to make the ‘bacon’ salt. I prefer using prosciutto slices because of their delicate and intense flavor.

Homemade Oven Roasted Tater Tots

Homemade Tater Tots
Why have I waited so long to make homemade tater tots? They’re SO much better than the frozen ones you buy at the store. I knew from the moment I was assembling them that this recipe would be a winner. These tater tots are perfectly fluffy on the inside and golden brown and crisp on the outside. Plus they’re healthier, baked and not fried with only a handful of ingredients: potatoes, olive oil, salt and pepper.

Chia Seed Breakfast Pudding with Berries

Berry Chia Seed Pudding
I enjoy a nice hearty breakfast but ever since we got back from our food-fueled holiday trip to Europe I’ve been eating lighter morning meals. This sweet chia seed pudding is vegan, dairy-free and the perfect healthy dish for breakfast, or even dessert! You can also easily double (or triple) the amount, make ahead of time and leave in the fridge for breakfast during the week.

Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Brownies

Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Brownies
I’ll admit it, almost every night after dinner I get a craving for anything sweet, especially chocolatey stuff. So the other night I made these flourless brownies to test out for the blog. I let my husband try one before me and he was speechless, it’s seriously that good. These brownies are made with almond meal (yes, they are gluten-free!) but my special ingredient is chocolate peanut butter (Amazon Affiliate link). You have to try this out, chocolate peanut butter is so delicious and works really well in brownies.
