  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Ingredients 😄 the bacon is already in the oven 😋

    Step 2

    So I put my bacon on some parchment on top of a cookie sheet and put it into a 425F oven. It cooked for 20 minutes or so, but keep checking on it so it doesn't burn 😉

    Step 3

    Bacon sizzling and smelling fantastic! 😋

    Step 4

    While you are waiting on the bacon, you can toast your hazelnuts. On another cookie sheet, put parchment paper down and spread the raw hazelnuts out. Put into a 300F oven for about 20 minutes.

    Step 5

    Here they are all toasted 😄

    Step 6

    Here's a video on how to de-skin the hazelnuts. The nuts will taste better without the skins. 😋

    Step 7

    Here is the nicely cooked and crispified bacon! Oh, I so can't wait to eat it....

    Step 8

    Everything is ready to be made into an amazing salad so LET'S DO THIS!

    Step 9

    First, chop your head of lettuce in half.

    Step 10

    Here are the wedges, but they need to be trimmed a little more.

    Step 11

    I cut the ends off and took off the outermost layer of lettuce because it was a little wilty.

    Step 12

    Now is the time to pour on the blue cheese dressing...

    Step 13

    Next add your crumbled blue cheese...

    Step 14

    OMG it's BACON time 😋

    Step 15

    Look at all that bacon! Yummmm...

    Step 16

    Now add your hazelnuts. You can chop them if you want smaller pieces but we just put them on whole.

    Step 17

    Croutons on top...

    Step 18

    And there you have it! A fantastically tasty salad you're sure to love 😉

    Step 19
