I have no idea what he was thinking, Just because he liked it
Hmm. I may try braiding celery, or thinly sliced zucchini. Oh, who am I kidding? The pig RULES! Turkey bacon is an oxymoron. Turkey doesn"t even have bacon parts.

Well, the bacon does shrunk as it cooks and close up around the appendages, holding them in. And it would be harder to poke a fingerhole and insert the pieces. I have used a paring knife before though to get them started... yes, it could be done. You would really want or need a good presentation (IMO) to want to assemble it like that though.
But that's a good idea and probably the best way to go.

Boy I wish I could come up with brilliant ideas like that
I think one of my doggie friends sent me a picture of one, so of course I had to try it... numerous times

did you eat bacon-back turtle yet? you and the patchwork tortoise were great sunday entertainment, pac. say, those good looking bacon slices weren't from your sale were they? maybe for your next bacon weave, you could fashion a summer diving raft? using the hot dogs as logs under the raft's woven platform? not as cute as a turtle of course....

No way those uniform slices were from that sale bacon, lol. That stuff is worth *every bit* of $2/lb It tastes fine though. And makes a lot of bacon grease. I need some more grease for the fridge, I'm running low. Heck, I couldn't even get the sale bacon to wrap around an ABT without tearing. I ended up making a mad dash to the store and the bacon I got was on sale, too! $4/lb for Sugardale and you can see how uniform they are. I bought four packages, used two and will buy some more before the sale ends

We need a fun with bacon challenge. You've got some good ideas there

Pac, I wonder if changing the shape of the fatty so it's smaller (not as fat) so it would cook faster may help with the burned legs.

A thinner burger wouldn't help the bacon cook faster. That's where the problem lies. Plus... it needs to be somewhat thick in order to accept the legs, head and tail and still maintain proportions to the red-eared slider

Good suggestion. Frozen dogs or sausages, plus a small foil thimble tent just might do it.
I'll try this my next one.
