Behold The Majesty Of A Bacon Weave!

I’ve started a whole new way of eating: everything is wrapped in bacon!

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!

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:

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:

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):

bacon_weaving

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.

  1. That is a lot of bacon, John, and it looks great. I don’t know if I could eat that much though.

    • You can “scale” the bacon according to your taste…in fact, I rarely eat bacon but when I do, I try to make something unique and different…and this certainly is – thanks for the comment!

  2. 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.

  3. Bacon …I now want to eat bacon…All sound yummy where to start..Bacon and jalapenos with cream cheese methinks to start 🙂

  4. I want to make a bacon wrapped meatloaf.

  5. 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…

  6. OMG! This looks so so good! Bacon wrapped burritos… I really need to try one of those recipes!

  7. Count me in, John!
    Everything except the avocado. I can’t eat those. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.
