I LOVE BACON! Any recipe that calls for bacon automatically sends a lets-go-make-this signal to my brain. So of course when I saw bacon used as a serving dish I went ballistic! Why not eat out of a cup made of bacon? I mean there are fewer dishes to wash now; the food definitely has a more unique presentation, and it’s BACON!
- aluminum foil
- baking sheet
- cupcake pans (I used the regular size cupcake pans. For a deeper bacon cup use the jumbo size muffin tins)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Cover the bottom of the cupcake pan with aluminum foil as this will be the mold for your bacon cups.
Weave the bacon around each cupcake mold to form a dome-like shape. You may need to cut the bacon in half if you are using a regular size cupcake pan.
*Note: You do not need to coat the foil with cooking spray. The grease from the bacon allows the bacon cup to not stick to the foil as it cooks.
Place the cupcake pan on top of a bacon sheet. You do not want the fat from the bacon dripping to the bottom of the oven. Not only is it hard to clean afterwards but it may cause more smoke to arise and even flames. Watch your oven carefully!
Bake for 15 minutes or until cooked.
Gently pull the bacon cup from the mold. I filled mine with salad and feta cheese.
