We’ve got two fabulous roasted veggie recipes that are made better with bacon. Serve them up with Christmas Dinner this year! The first recipe is for Curried Roasted Cauliflower with Bacon. If you don’t like the taste of curry, simply omit it and roast the cauliflower with olive oil, salt and pepper. But, if you dare to try it, you’re in for a pleasant surprise. The spicy, smoky flavor of curry powder perfectly complements savory bacon.
The second recipe is for those with a bit of a sweet tooth. Cinnamon, brown sugar and olive oil are tossed with cubes of butternut squash, then wrapped in bacon and baked in the oven. The crisp bacon and the softly roasted squash are a delicious flavor and texture combo. Make sure and give these little babies time to cool before you pop them in your mouth!
