How to make it

  • Instructions:
  • In a pan over medium heat, cook and crisp bacon (you may need to do this in batches). Cooking on medium will leave the bacon somewhat chewy and render out the most fat. Drain bacon and reserve a 1/4 of a cup of fat off to the side. While the pan is off, but not cooled, add garlic and let warm for a few minutes. In a food processor or blender, add your bacon and now warmed garlic. Pulse to start, then process until evenly mixed. Add in pine nuts (or walnuts), parmesan cheese and bacon fat. Repeat the pulse, process and smooth process. Pour extra virgin olive oil and process again, finally pulsing in salt and pepper to taste. Depending on how you like your pesto (thick or thin) add more olive oil until desired constancy.
