For everyone that has had BAKLAVA, you know it’s very rich, and that you can only eat a small amount. Well, I found this recipe for “Bacon Baklava”, and I knew that it would be SINFULLY DELICIOUS! And trust me, you will need to repent for this dessert because it is just THAT sinfully good!!
Baklava is a rich, sweet dessert pastry made of layers of phyllo dough filled with chopped nuts and sweetened and held together with syrup. No one can say for sure, but it is believed to have been derived from a second century dated recipe in the Ottoman Empire. The Greeks and Turks still argue over who made it first.
How can those delicate layers of pastry and nuts possibly be improved upon, except with bacon? The adage that bacon makes everything better definitely applies here! The directions for Bacon Baklava are easy to follow. But I suggest that you read them a couple of times before you start. Baklava tends to be on the tricky side anyway.
Phyllo dough can seem scary at first. But, once you understand that the sheer quantity of layers will mask the flaws of any individual sheet, you will gain confidence. Just imagine crunching into buttery layers of salty bacon, sweet maple syrup and crunchy nuts. It’s like a dessert party in your mouth, Greek-style! Orange flower water and rose water are available at gourmet shops and Mediterranean markets.
Everyone will love this sweet and sticky dessert!
