Crispy Bacon Rings with Smoked Salmon Mousse

Ease of Preparation: Easy. A recipe is merely words on paper; a guideline, a starting point from which to improvise. It cannot pretend to replace the practiced hand and telling glance of a watchful cook. For that reason feel free to stir your own ideas into this dish. When you cook it once, it becomes yours, so personalize it a bit. Add more of an ingredient you like or less of something you don't like. Try substituting one ingredient for another. Remember words have no flavour, you have to add your own!

Ingredients

4 large carrots, washed

6 slices bacon, cut in half widthwise

12 toothpicks

6 slices smoked salmon

½ cup cream cheese

Alfalfa sprouts, or other sprouts

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 375°F.

2. Cut carrots into 2-inch pieces from the thick end, so there are 12 pieces.

3. Lay the 12 pieces of bacon on a flat work surface and then place a carrot piece at the end of each slice.

4. Roll up so that the bacon is wrapped around the carrot pieces and secure with a toothpick.

5. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes, until the bacon is golden and crispy.

6. Remove toothpicks and carefully slide the bacon rings off of the carrots.

7. Discard carrots and cool bacon rings on a rack.

8. Puree the smoked salmon and cream cheese in a food processor.

9. Spoon into a piping bag, or freezer bag with the tip cut off and pipe mousse into the bacon rings.

10. Garnish with sprigs of sprouts.
