bacon as craft material

Very interesting! Thanks for posting this.

I'm thinking that the weaving, though, on the baskets is just an aesthetic thing and not really necessary for the final piece. Won't the bacon keep it's shape when it cooks and all stay together anyway without the weaving?

Perhaps this needs further testing... :laugh:

I was thinking that you could wrap the bacon around a cannoli mold bake it then stuff it with something like scrambled eggs w/mushrooms and onion.

There is a post somewhere here on eGullet where someone suggested wrapping chicken skin around a cannoli mold and frying it crisp, then filling it with mashed potatoes.

Bacon could be just as good. :wub:

For the baconophiles:

bacon baskets

and

bacon placemats!

I have done similar things with noodles and potato, as I am sure many are familiar with here. Tried grits and that was not as kind.

That basket needs to be filled with garlic cheese grits and topped with a fried egg lid. It's whats for breakfast.

can you please point me to your thread or do you still have the instructions? I am just a newbie here so I really had not seen that thread yet...and may not if you did not mention it here...

Thanks....austramerica

For a noodle basket? Same idea. Take a remkin, grease it, turn upside down on a cookie sheet, cover in cooked noodles and bake till set. Same for potato slices. Or fry if have the equipment. I have a tortilla folder that is fun to use as well since you can press the noodle or potatoes into a taco shell shape.

I like crispy chicken skin even more than bacon, the thigh skin is the best. How about wrapping a piece of chicken skin around a piece of boudin then frying it till it's crispy. I really need a drool emoticon here.

Edited: To make that Zumo's smoked boudin.
