Bacon adds a surprising twist to classic baklava for a sweet and salty treat.

Ingredients

1
(16 ounce) package walnuts (4 cups)
1/2
cup sugar
1
teaspoon ground cinnamon
1
(16 ounce) package frozen phyllo, thawed
1
cup butter, melted
1
(12 ounce) jar honey
1
(16 ounce ) package of bacon, fried crisp

Directions

  • 1 In large bowl of food processor, add walnuts, bacon, sugar, and cinnamon. Pulse until walnuts and bacon are chopped; set aside. (Be sure to fry the bacon to a crispy stage. Then it will chop up finely and evenly.)
  • 2 Cut phyllo into 13
  • 3 Over phyllo in baking dish, sprinkle 1 cup walnut mixture.
  • 4 Repeat steps 2 and 3 to make 3 more layers (4 layers total). Place remaining phyllo on top of last walnut layer; brush with butter.
  • 5 With sharp knife, cut just halfway through layers in triangle or diamond pattern.
  • 6 Bake in 300° F oven for 1 hour and 25 minutes or until top is golden brown.
  • 7 In small saucepan over medium-low heat, heat honey until hot but not boiling. Evenly spoon hot honey over hot baklava.
  • 8 Cool Baklava in dish on wire rack at least 1 hour; cover with foil and let stand at room temperature until serving.
  • 9 To serve, finish cutting, with a sharp knife, through layers to make triangles or diamonds.
