Dec 30th = National Bacon Day!

No shockeroo here… I like bacon. It’s tough to think of foods that are not improved by the smoky, salty, sinful sensuousness of freshly fried bacon!

Instead of a recipe for this special day, I thought a technique might be fun. If you haven’t done this before, I do suggest a Bacon Weave for your next burger or BLT.


Cut the slices of bacon in half, crosswise. Weave 6 pieces, as if creating a mat or a lattice crust, but do not leave spaces between them.


Simply fry it up as one unit, turning the entire weave over with a wide spatula. Drain on paper towels and serve atop anything you want!



Yes, you can make these ahead of time. They refrigerate and freeze beautifully. And, quite frankly, if you do not put extras into the freezer right away, they are highly likely to vanish… rather rapidly… as snacks!
