. Low-Carb Bacon Bites
Are you looking for a simple and delicious snack that is both versatile and low carb? Bacon bites may be the perfect snack for you! Bacon bites are made by combining all of the flavors and ingredients you love about bacon, wrapped in a light and crispy coating. Whether you are looking for an indulgent treat for yourself or a quick and easy snack to make for a party, bacon bites are sure to please even the pickiest of taste buds.
Bacon is a timeless classic, yet the thought of frying and sugary glazes often steers away those looking to maintain a healthy diet. Bacon bites, however, can provide a delicious snack without the added fat and sugar. This dish combines ingredients you likely have right in your pantry, such as pork belly, eggs, and spices, all cooked together in parchment paper and baked in the oven. The end result? A golden, crunchy bacon bite that’s sure to please.
Now let’s get started on making those flavorful and crispy bacon bites! To make them, you’ll need parchment paper, pork belly slices, 1 egg beaten, Italian herbs (basil, oregano, thyme, parsley), extra virgin olive oil, salt, and pepper.
Start by preheating your oven to 375° F. Cut the pork belly slices into small bite-sized pieces and place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle on the herbs, salt and pepper to taste. In a small bowl, make sure the egg is beaten and then coat the pork belly pieces with the egg. Lightly drizzle with olive oil and bake for 25 minutes or until golden and crispy. Once done, remove from the oven and let cool and enjoy your bacon bites!
If you’re looking for a more savory flavor, you can add some freshly grated Parmesan cheese to the dish as well. The extra cheese will pair nicely with the herbs for a very flavorful bite. You can also switch up the herbs to suit your taste. Fresh rosemary and thyme are a great combination for an earthy flavor.
Bacon bites can be a special treat for any occasion. Serve them as an appetizer for lunch, dinner, or game day. They’re great for snacking, too – either on their own or with some ranch or other flavorful dip. Bacon bites also make a great addition to a salad and can easily satisfy those late night cravings.
Not only are these bacon bites delicious, but they are also surprisingly easy to make. They take only a few minutes of prep time, about 25 minutes to cook, and with their crispy, crunchy texture, you can be sure everyone will enjoy them. Plus, you don’t have to worry about frying or saturating the pork belly with unhealthy glazes. Bacon bites are low carb and full of flavor.
