Someone asked me how I weave bacon, so today I took some pics (lotta hand washing going on, lol) of the method I use.
A bacon weave is usually associated with wrapping it around some meat you are smoking, but it can be baked in the oven as well and used to make some fancy looking bacon burgers by cutting it to size after it has cooked. These weaves were for some fatties, so four strips wide did the trick. And as doing most anything with bacon, letting it warm up some after it has come out of the refrigerator helps you stretch it and then the bacon adhere to whatever you are wrapping it around.
Use a cutting board and lay the strips side by side, with one end being even with the near edge of the cutting board. Flip up every other strip back onto itself.
Lay a horizontal piece across the strips and flip the other strips back down.
The reason you are using a cutting board is so you can now drag it towards you and let it hang over the edge counter. Now take the other
strips and bring them towards you, letting them hang off of the edge of the cutting board. Bring them over so they are tight with the first horizontal strip you just layed in. It's warm bacon, it will stick to the board. Trust me
Bring the dangling strips back up and bring the other strips back down so that now they are hanging. Repeat...
...until you have this.
Now you can transfer it to a sheet pan and bake it, or wrap it around a fatty,
or even make a turtle burger with it
(Disclaimer: We are working with dangling bacon here. Doing this while your pet is underfoot is probably not a good idea
