OMG. I tin can’t incorporate my excitement over this ane. I didn’t intend I could love guacamole whatever more than than I do, just this combo of flavors is insane.

Bacon, butternut, sage, pomegranate, and toasted pumpkin seeds are a serious jibe made inwards sky. This app will be on repeat inwards my kitchen alllll season long. Heck, I mightiness even consume it for dinner.

I tin can’t go over the textures together with flavors. If y'all’re mortal that needs crush together with a ton of different textures inwards your food (howdy, that’sec me), you will LOVE this. The pomegranate seeds as well as pumpkin seeds pop inward your oral fissure, the bacon gives yous that salty crush, and the butternut is super creamy too delicious.
Oh. I also fried the sage leaves inward bacon grease. Best determination EVER. I commonly shaver my sage leaves in chocolate-brown butter if I’thousand adding them to pizza, pasta, or salad, merely the bacon fatty is a full game changer.

I used a paleo bacon inwards this, which means it has no saccharide, additives or crazy ingredients. I actually honey the sense of taste of it too it’second a “cleaner” option. If you lot tin can’t observe it, whatsoever bacon volition do. An applewood smoked bacon would be delicious inwards this.
