Behold The Majesty Of A Bacon Weave!
First of all, thanks to all of you who couldn’t wait to share this with me – it’s a new bacon classic, using our favorite cooking technique: the bacon weave!
As you can see, bacon is so much more than an ingredient: it has now taken over the role of bread and tortillas!
I have previously shared the “bacon weave taco”, which is a delicious way to go “south of the border”…and I also found this majestic breakfast item:
The Bacon Weave Breakfast Bowl!
You see how great that is? Thanks to “Baconology” for this masterpiece of the morning: Eggs, pancakes and more – all held in place by a beautiful bacon weave! And now, thanks to another great website, we have the ultimate in good taste:
The Bacon Weave Cheeseburger Burrito!
Kudos’s To Thrillist!
The great website “Thrillist.com” posted this recipe – go to their site to see all of the fun and fascinating stories they post all day every day!
Here is the “Thrillist” recipe, which they have on their website as well (the link follows the recipe):
1 1/2 pounds Oscar Mayer bacon (it’s the best for weaving)
2 handfuls frozen French fries
1 pound ground chuck
5 slices American cheese
3 tablespoons chopped red onion
1 pickle spear
Preheat oven to 425°F.
Line a baking sheet with foil and place a wire rack on it. Place 5 strips of bacon in an even layer on the rack. Place fries in an even layer on another baking sheet. Bake both until crispy, about 15 minutes.
Spread out a foot-long sheet of plastic wrap on the counter.
Make a 6×6-strip bacon weave (step-by-step instructions below if you’re a bacon-weave virgin).
Put beef in a gallon-size Ziploc bag and roll it out into a 1/4-inch thick, 10-inch square. With scissors, cut off the zipper closure and cut down the side seams, leaving just the bottom seam intact. Unfold the bag and layer on cheese, leaving a 1/2-inch bare on all edges except the top edge, which needs a couple inches. On the bottom third, pile cooked bacon, fries, onion, and pickle. Pull the bottom edge of the Ziploc bag up and over all the filling and roll into a tight log. Tuck the ends in.
Pick up the meat log using the bag and roll it off onto the bacon weave, near one edge. Pull the plastic wrap up on that edge of the bacon weave and roll the meat log over the rest of the bacon so it’s completely wrapped. Tuck the ends in.
Transfer the bacon-weave burrito to the wire rack and bake for 30 or 40 minutes, which is the difference between medium- and well-done.
Remove from oven and let the burrito rest on the wire rack for 10 minutes. Serve with your cheeseburger toppings of choice.
Thanks again to the great food minds as Thrillist – go there now to see this recipe and so much more:
And remember, Elvis would approve of this recipe – because here is his favorite peanut butter and banana sandwich with a bacon weave as well!
Or what about some:
Yes, someone has come up with a style of sushi that NO ONE ever expected – with bacon! See how to make your own here:

That’s a serious meat fest, I had no idea about the structural propertied of bacon until now!
Mind you I have to say that the bacon and egg roll will remain my favourite. Now to bed, the sooner I get up the sooner I can have bacon and eggs for breakfast.
Thanks for the follow by the way 🙂

Pete, these are so easy to make, and if you are making a burrito, why waste your calories on a tortilla – just use bacon-weave as your wrapper! Thanks for reading!
