Homemade bacon bits are so easy to make, if you have certain kitchen tools to make it with. A knife just takes to long to cut up into smaller pieces. I think every home by now has a food processor. If you don’t, go out and buy one. The nicer ones run anywhere from 100 to 150.00 for good brands. I’ve seen them at Wal-Mart for about $20.00 a food processor. The one I have is a 9 quart food processor from Cuisan Art, and I love it. In fact, it just happens to be my favorite tool in the kitchen.
Making your own bacon bits, only works with crispy bacon. If you’re one of those people that don’t like crispy bacon, then I guess you’re out of luck. All you do is cook the bacon until it’s very crispy. Place the bacon, preferably grease drained, in the food processor, and pulse it until the bacon is the size of sea salt. It’s that easy! Store the bacon bits somewhere in your fridge.
