Parmesan Garlic Bacon Knots
These Bacon Knots are absolutely scrumptious! We could not stop eating them until they were all gone.
All you need is regular sliced Bacon, seasoning, (I use garlic powder and Italian seasoning) and grated Parmesan cheese.
I line my pan with parchment paper although not necessary. First, tie the bacon in a knot but don’t pull tight, then tie another knot. Tuck the ends close to the knot.
I get most of my spices from Aldi. Great prices.
Sprinkle garlic and Italian seasoning onto each knot. Bake in preheated 375 degree oven for 8 minutes. I used my air fryer, it cooks a little faster and the texture is a little more crispy.
After 8 minutes, remove them from the oven and right away sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
I use Kraft grated Parmesan. The cheese will stick to the grease. Return to oven for another 6-8 minutes, depending on how you want them cooked. I like mine crisp on the outside but the inside will be softer and delicious!
Pull them from the oven and let them cool down a bit.
Always save your bacon grease to cook with. It’s the best! I love scrambled eggs in bacon grease and also stir fried green beans.
These are so good! Serve them as a snack or a side or they would make an amazing appetizer! Take my advice, make a lot because they will disappear fast!
Cut bacon into small pieces. Add butter to skillet. Sauté onions and bacon in butter and grease.
Open and drain green beans. Pour over onions. You can use fresh or frozen green beans as well, the fresh will need longer time to cook.
Add bacon and mushrooms and heat through will stirring.
Add salt and pepper.
When finished, top green beans with Parmesan and serve.

Fried Cabbage & Bacon Low Carb Side Dish
I’m always looking for new ideas for side dishes. Today I decided to try fried cabbage and bacon. We are grilling steaks and I wanted something different to go along side.
Here’s what I used:
5 slices of bacon
1/2 yellow onion
1 tsp garlic
1/2 head chopped cabbage
There’s just two of us so you could adjust the amounts as needed. I fried five pieces of bacon up and removed them until later.
I used half of a yellow onion, sliced and a tsp of garlic, I added them to the bacon grease and caramelized them.
I chopped up half of a head of cabbage and put it in with the onions and garlic. I added some salt and pepper and a tablespoon of smoked paprika.
I felt I didn’t have enough bacon grease so I added a drizzle of olive oil, added the bacon back that I chopped, stirred everything together and placed a lid on top to let the cabbage cook down and soften.
This was so delicious! I’ll definitely make it again!
