Here is the new trend in bacon. Weaves. Take bacon and weave it into a sheet and then bake it. While this is "the new thing", I have been doing this since I invented bacon. Just to show you how brilliant I am, I have a new invention. Bacon braids. Take that world (wide web)!
I like to cut my bacon lengthwise for a tighter weave. This isn't necessary but should be. Do not pan fry your sheet of bacon. Bake it in the oven at about 325 degrees. This will keep it from curling and becoming a waste of your time. The cool thing about weaves is that you cook it and cut it to the shape you would like. Squares, triangles, trucker mud flap ladies or just cut it to fit your sandwich/burger. You can also shape it into a bowl for a healthy salad or to wear on you head. The possibilities are endless. Enjoy.
