How To Weave Bacon For The Ultimate BLT

There are few things more delicious than the combination of bacon, lettuce, and tomato. We have the secret to the best BLT of your life – the bacon weave. Bacon weaves for sandwiches are sort of like mini-weaves, a 1 pound package of thin sliced bacon can make around 5 sandwich sized weaves.

Ingredients for a Bacon Weave BLT

 

How to Make a Bacon Weave Sandwich

Step 1:

Use a sweet style bacon for a candied bacon weave.
You can use one to two packs of bacon for your bacon weave BLT.
Use your favorite flavor of bacon for this bacon weave recipe.
Bacon weave on the grill.
Evenly slice your bacon to make your bacon weave.
Make the slices of bacon the same size for your bacon weave to cook evenly.
Bacon pieces to start making your bacon weave.
Lay out a few pieces of bacon to start your bacon weave.

First we will need to weave the bacon. In the sideshow above I have step-by-step pictures. Cut 3 slices of bacon in half to make 6 pieces, lay 3 half-slices side by side on a raised baking rack or a baking tray lined with aluminum foil.

 

Step 2:

Start your bacon weave with three pieces of bacon.
Lay out three pieces of bacon weave vertically.
Fold the top part of the middle strip of your baocn weave.
Place one strip of bacon across.

Fold the middle slice down and lay another half-slice across and on top of the other two slices (see picture in slideshow).

Step 3:

Secure the horizontal bacon strip on your bacon weave.
Flip the folded strip back up.

Unfold the middle slice so it lies over the top of the across slice you had just put down.

 

Step 4:

Do the opposite of Step 3.
Fold the two end bacon strips upwards.

Now fold the two outside slices over the across slice. Lay another half-slice across the middle slice, then unfold the two outside slices over the across slice you had just put down.

 

Step 5:

Your bacon weave is now coming together nicely.
Lay another piece of bacon horizontally.
Lock the bacon strip in place.
Fold the end strips back down over the horizontal bacon strip.

Fold the middle slice up over the across slice and lay another half-slice across the two outside slices.

 

Step 6:

 

Your bacon weave is almost complete.
Fold the middle strip upwards and lay another bacon strip across.
Lock your bacon weave.
Lock your bacon weave down by folding the middle strip over the horizontal bacon strip.

Now unfold the middle slice over the last slice you put down. You now should have a mini-bacon weave. Again, check the step-by-step in the slideshow. It is really easy to follow if you look at the step-by-step pictures.

 

Step 7:

You can also cook your bacon weave pieces in an oven.
Bacon weave pieces on a grill.

Repeat for each sandwich you plan to make. Preheat grill or oven to 350ºF.

 

Step 8:
