This year for Father’s Day, I was struggling to think of a gift for my dad, which is weird because I am normally very good at finding gifts! And when all else fails, I think about things that people can use, such as foods. This Bacon Bourbon Flavored Salt was the winning idea! A gift that he could use on practically anything, combining two of his favorite things: bacon and bourbon.

It makes a great gift because it is DELICIOUS and so versatile to use on so many different things. In the summer I am ALWAYS looking for a reason to grill. And since I am grilling so much, I need some new ideas or flavors to use! That is where flavored salts like this Bacon Bourbon Flavored Salt come in. It is a great way to spice up a simple piece of chicken, pork, steak, or even vegetables with exciting flavors. This year on Father’s Day we sprinkled it on some bread slices and as a topped on deviled eggs. The possibilities are endless!
This salt is crazy easy to make, guys! Literally just put the ingredients in a food processor, pulse, and you are done! You can use it right away if you want, but the flavors do develop more if you are able to let it sit for a day or longer. It is best to use a small food processor to ensure the blade can reach the ingredients and get a good blend.
The primary base of this is still salt and not another seasoning, so use it sparingly like you would salt. I love to use this stuff for special events, parties, and gatherings. Especially in the summer with Father’s Day and the 4th of July when you are most likely grilling anyway. And it is great as a gift for anyone that loves for or grilling, like Dad, because sometimes it is just IMPOSSIBLE to figure out what to give them. Food is always a good idea, right? And this is something they can use and enjoy, whether they share or not. 🙂
