Bakin’ With Bacon And The King


Here I Am – The King – With A Super Recipe For You!!

Greetings loyal subjects……………today I have something different for you but that doesn’t mean it contains NO BACON…….to the contrary it contains a lot.   It’s also something that the ROYAL MOM adores – roasted vegetables but with a bacon “twist”!    Intrigued?   Good……………you might want to try this one.

Oven Roasted Vegetables With Bacon



  • 2 cups baby carrots
  • fresh broccoli
  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 1 large russet potato
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 5-10 or more bacon strips, cooked & crumbled
  • 1-2 tablespoons Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons butter thinly sliced


  • Preheat oven to 425 F.
  • Line a baking sheet with greased foil or a non-stick pan liner. Set aside.
  • Cut up vegetables so that they are close to the same size.(Cut harder vegetables a bit smaller)
  • Place vegetables in a bowl.
  • Toss with minced garlic.
  • Toss vegetables lightly with olive oil. ( may need more or less)
  • Add in cooked, crumbled bacon and toss.
  • Spread into an even layer on a large baking sheet.
  • Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper and toss.
  • Bake for 25 minutes or until the carrots are tender, yet still firm.
  • Remove from oven and add on pats of butter.
  • Sprinkle again with salt if desired.
  • Serve immediately.

Yes – and plenty of it I might add!!

This is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good.    Mom had made a roast the first time she made this recipe but imagine it with chicken or ANYTHING…….just plain tasty.    We hope you will try this one – roasted vegetables get a bit of “sweetness” to them and with the bacon it’s sweet AND salty.  Nice combo!

Yep – we all need to tingle from time to time……..!

I must clean up the kitchen – the staff is having a day off – we like to keep the staff happy here in Castle Baconia…………… PAYS to be nice!!

Happy Cooking (and Eating!) – Your King

  1. This receipt is perfect for us right now. We will have to hold the bacon though due to some health issues. Thanks for the great receipts, Teddy.


  2. That sounds very tasty! I do something very similar but with Mediterranean vegetables, courgettes, aubergines and sweet peppers as well as the garlic and sweet potatoes, but of course no bacon.


  3. Mom would have to leave out the peppers, but this looks very easy and sounds yummy. Bet other veggies could be added as well, like cauliflower or Brussel sprouts. Mom thinks it would make a great main course with some nice crusty bread. Thanks for another winner, Teddy.
