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. After that I hung it over a couple kabob sticks that were balanced across empty beer bottles and left it like that for a few minutes so it would keep its shape. Im sure that there was probably something better I could have draped it over, but youve gotta make do with what youve got right?
Since I wasnt quite sure if beer bottles were safe to put in the oven I swapped them out for a couple pint glasses, put them on a baking sheet, hung my bacon weave taco shell between them and slid it back into my oven for another ten minutes so it could finish cooking.
Granted, Im sure the beer bottles would have been fine, but I didnt know if the labels would burn or if the glue that holds them to the bottle is toxic. Then again, when youre eating stuff like this on a regular basis a little bit of toxic glue should probably be the least of your worries .
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!
Looks like a hand-held heart attack. Bet it tastes good though.
Amazing and it looks as fantastic as advertised. My better half just rolled her eyes and I know that this will never grace my table (unless I get busy on the rate weekend when I become a bachelor again).
the walnut maple cutting board adds a nice touch of americana
Just a few days ago, I saw a Ramen noodle taco. It looked interesting, too.
I’m not sure that I’ll ever make either one of those.
I’m thinking that’s bamboo and dyed bamboo for a nice touch of Asiana. See the nodes?
She probably will not make it but there is nothing that is preventing you from making it yourself.
Now that’s what I call a breakfast taco.
Hmmm...a loom wouldn’t be that hard to build.
That sounds like a lot of trouble to go through just to get some tasty chow.
Oh.My.Word. That’s looks AWESOME! Love bacon.
Stuffed with eggs and cheese just seems to be naturally the next step.
Forget the trimming round part, I got NO problem eating a square taco!
Hey, I made my mama a maple-walnut board in 7th grade shop class. Real maple and walnut, too.
I see a pre-woven bacon market emerging ;-)
