Ingredients

  • strips bacon
  • 2  Cups  pistachios
  • Salt, to taste

Directions

Cook the bacon until crispy. Pat with a clean paper towel to remove excess fat, then chop into small pieces.

Process the nuts in your food processor for 5–10 minutes, or until completely smooth, scraping down the sides with a spatula as necessary.

Add the cooked bacon to the food processor and blend for another 3 minutes.

Add salt as needed for taste.

Bacon Shopping Tip

Look for center cut bacon which comes from a leaner part of the belly - you'll get more meat and less fat.

Bacon Cooking Tip

Cook bacon over medium to medium-low heat to prevent it from burning, and occasionally pour off the fat. You can save it for later use as a cooking oil.
