How to Make Bacon Salt

Last week my friend Jerry Diegel commented that he used to make bacon salts using smoked paprika. Immediately intrigued, I began to conceive of how I might make such a wonderful flavoured salt for myself - especially since I love the taste of bacon but can't always afford the calories it brings.

I quickly went to google, saw some ideas I liked, and then conceived of a recipe of my own.

And the result: a smoky, bacon flavoured, delight - perfect for sandwiches, potatoes, eggs, or whatever else might benefit from a lovely smoky bacon flavoured salt.

To make your own bacon salt in a spice grinder combine:
  • 1/2 cup coarse kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup bacon, cooked and crumbled, or real bacon bacon bits
  •  1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp chipotle chili powder
Pulse until it forms a nice course salt blend

Store in an air tight container and refrigerate.

  1. Very intriguing, how long do you think this will last, refrigerated?
