First, take 2 slices of the ready to eat microwaveable bacon you find packaged in the deli of any grocery store.

Now, you can cook it like this, but I happened to have some Trader Joe's Flower Pepper in my pantry and I've been dying to find new ways to use it. In addition to black peppercorns, it has rose petals, lavender, cornflower, and calendula. But, if you're serving a fellow, I'd just call it pepper so you don't scare him away. You can barely taste the flower. I promise!
Grind a little onto a plate and dip the top of your bacon into it. You'll end up with something like this:
You can make more than one at a time, and will probably have to increase the cooking time, as I only tested the time to cook one rose. Microwave for 25 seconds on high, longer to make it extra crispy, and allow to sit for a minute to drain. You don't want to serve a greasy flower.
Were you impressed with my football lingo? The plates inspired me--hope you have fun with these!
