Bacon-Wrapped Burritos! The BEST “Bacon-Wrapped” Recipes! Wait Until You See What You Can Wrap Bacon Around!


Behold The Majesty Of A Bacon Weave!

It’s Monday. I have jet lag caused by a 13-1/2 hour flight from Rome to Los Angeles, so naturally I thought of bacon – and one of the coolest ways to use it!


As you can see, bacon is so much more than an ingredient: it’s now a wrapping!

And it can be used for anything from Turkeys to Oreos!

Yes, I have shared the recipe for a bacon-wrapped Turkey, and I also showed you how country fairs are using it to wrap another iconic treat:

Of course I would eat one, would you? In fact, the use of bacon, whether as a wrap or a weave is a trend I heartily applaud!

Bacon Weave Taco

This “bacon weave taco” 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!

The great website “” 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

how to weave bacon

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!


If all of this bacon makes you hungry, try one of my great bacon-wrapped recipes!

Yes, it’s a “Bacon-Wrapped, Egg Stuffed Avocado” and while it looks amazing, my attempt to make it was anything but! See videos and pictures of my effort – if you want a good laugh – by clicking here!

And if you just want something a bit more “normal”, well you can always take a traditional macaroni-and-cheese recipe and turn it into this:

  3. Crikey, you’re right, you really can wrap anything in bacon haha! I’m not a HUGE bacon lover. But I do like it on occasion. Hunters Chicken is great! Although those burritos look delicious.

  6. Bacon lovers will rejoice at these ideas. I’m going to have to show this post to my mother, she’s a baconaholic. While some, like bacon fried Oreos, are just gross, you have to admit you can’t not be tempted by others…
