My kids love finger food and they especially love finger food that they can help make! This is a very kid friendly recipe. They can form the nuggets and roll them in the almond flour. We already make fish nuggets regularly and one day when we ran out of salmon I decided to try it with some bacon I had on hand. Brilliant! Bacon nuggets are now one of our regular favorites. I make a huge batch and freeze them.

Ingredients: 

  • 1 package bacon (I like to use “Ends & Pieces” for this recipe because they are so inexpensive)
  • 2 pastured eggs
  • 1/3 cup + 1 cup almond flour (some goes in the nuggets, some is the breading) — we use this kind
  • 1 tsp garlic granules
  • dash paprika
  • 1/3 cup shredded raw parmesan

Directions:

  • Cook bacon in a skillet, do not overcook it. You want it cooked about 3/4 of the way…not crispy!

  • Keep bacon grease in the pan, you will use it again later
  • Put cooked bacon into a food processor and pulse until it becomes bacon crumbles
