The Bacon Weave Taco

I have not tried this yet but I thought it was pretty cool and you would find it interesting

this is a compilation of 2 or 3 recipes …plus my own brilliant idea for a TACO MOLD

The Bacon Weave Taco

I know that tacos with shells made of bacon have been done before, but none of the ones I’ve seen looked very appetizing to me. It seems like people sort of took the easy way out when making them and just tossed their bacon over a metal object, made sure the strips overlapped a little so they’d stick together and either baked or deep-fried it like that so their shells just end up looking like squares of bacon that had been folded in half. Long story short, most of the bacon taco shells out there just don’t look very taco-shaped.

For my bacon taco shell I started off the same way I did when I made my Bacon Weave Quesdailla, by creating a square bacon weave, cooking it in my oven at 400° for about 15 minutes and then placing an upside down bowl over it and tracing around it with a knife until I was left with a circular bacon weave.

MY PART—- crumple up 203 sheets of aluminum foil (  or  2  OR  3 )   and shape into a TACO MOLD with a base. then drape bacon weave over the top

I       I

—-I        I——-

squint real hard and you get the idea,       if not have another beer and try again !

( Can anyone help me draw on this thing?  I’d appreciate it –THANKS)

-Put mold on cookie sheet and lay bacon disk over the top

Then slide back into my oven for another ten minutes so it could finish cooking.

In the end my Bacon Weave Taco ended up looking — and tasting — way better than I ever could have imagined. Once it was done baking I filled it to the brim with seasoned ground beef, sour cream, lettuce, tomato and shredded cheese and took a bite. It was completely amazing, and aside from that the shell actually looked exactly like a real taco shell!

Most of this is from

here’s a cheese taco shell you might also find interesting

Don’t know when I will try these , so write back and let me know how you did

Eat and Enjoy!
