Bacon on Bacon, or the Bacon What? Log Recipe

Gentle Readers, this post will be picture-heavy, because sometimes words just won’t do. Today’s recipe comes from the hands of a colleague and friend, a fellow bacon fan, whom we shall call BaconFreaky. When someone tells you, first you weave a bacon basket, you simply must stop what you’re doing and listen.

How to Weave a Bacon Basket. Wow. Just wow.

And because this is total dude food, I’m leaving this in dude speak, as was shared with me. Because this recipe is not meant for the faint of heart. Literally.

16 strips THICK bacon
cheese (TPC: I would recommend a sharp cheddar or a pepper jack)
sausage (hot) (TPC: I would use mild, but I’m not a dude)
chopped pickled jalepeños (TPC: you can use the whole or the pre-diced pickled ones, up to you)
pepperoni (TPC: why not at this point?)
BONUS: sausage links FTW! (TPC: Again, why hold back now?)
(TPC: Unlisted, but apparently a tanker of beer is needed as accompaniment)

 Do This:

On a sheet of aluminum foil: Make bacon weave. Spread sausage over 1/2 of the weave!

Layer sausage over 1/2 the weave, and add a generous layer of chopped pickled jalepenos.

1/2″ thick layer pepperoni (ridiculous layers), layer jalapeños (lots make it GOOD!), layer cheese (little makes it BETTER!).

Layer the pepperoni and cheese: too much cheese leads to the dreaded ooze. Use wisely.

One LINE of sausage links across. Roll up in aluminum foil like a burrito.

Bake at 250 1 hour for each inch of Bacon Log. (TPC: Buy a meat thermometer to test this!)

Let sit for 1 hour after you take it out of the oven. Enjoy.

So, there you go folks. Are you ready for that much bacon? Post your comments below! I have an urge to have a slice of that for breakfast on a biscuit. Perhaps that’s just me.
