Why use a real bowl, when you can use a fat-tastic one!

Step 1: Things You Will Need

Picture of Things You Will Need
1 (2).JPG
Bacon (I used turkey bacon)
Cheese: Parmesan, Dubliner, or Romano ( I used Parmesan & Dubliner)
Garlic powder & black pepper (optional)

Non-stick parchment paper (Not wax paper)
Baking sheet
Food processor

Step 2: Prep Work

1. Cook bacon until nice and crispy. I like to cut it up first so it cooks faster. Once it is fully cooked,
    place on paper towel to remove excess grease
2. Grate the cheese of use the food processor to cut it into small crumbs
3. Use food processor to cut bacon into small crumbs

Step 3: Cooking Your Bowls

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Place parchment paper onto baking sheet
3. Sprinkle bacon into 2 large circles on the baking sheet. It should be a very thin, but consistent
     layer.
4. Sprinkle a semi-thin layer of cheese over the bacon.  Any bacon or parchment paper visible will be a
     weak spot in your bowl, so make sure everything is covered well.
5. Sprinkle a small amount of garlic powder and black pepper (or other favorite seasonings) on top
     of the cheese.
6. Place in oven for about 5 minutes.

That looks awesome! Where do you get the brick of Dubliner?!
crapsoup (author)  Skymeat1 year ago
I got it at the fat and stupid store, also known as Costco.
I just voted for you.....yeah !!!
Hope you win.

Thanks for the support!
This is a great idea. Like Taco salad inside for the low carb. Take a little bit of work but worth it. Looks yummy. I want some now.

Wow! From those of us doing low carb - thank you! What a perfect way to serve salad, or small ones filled with a low carb appetizer.

After making most of my instructables, I'm going to need to be on a low carb diet myself. hehe. Anyway, I plan on doing more low carb stuff in the future, so keep an eye out.

Great yummy idea! Suggestion: a large lettuce leaf would be a good liner for this to contain sauces or dressings from the salad or taco so they won't drip thru.

Good call, thanks for the add-on.

Easy crispy crunchy bacon and cheese. You have my vote.
Let's be honest here - these don't even need a filling. Just knock up say, 30-40 and serve. Cheese and bacon biscuits! Sorry, cookies for our cousins across the water. It's the middle of the night here, or I'd be in the kitchen now.
Oh my gosh, those taco shells look so awesome! Going to try this baconlicious combo right away, thanks.

This is the best thing I have seen in a long while. You get my vote and I don't even eat cheese.

Hey thanks man. I'm just glad i get to share my fatty treats with people who can appreciate them. Thanks for the vote.
I think I heard a reference to this in an ancient text called the Book of Revelation, sir. Evil...yet worthy of a vote, methinks.

zomg!!!!!! EYE POPPING POSSIBILITIES, lol!! (....and then there were taco shells, party bites....d-r-o-o-o-l-l-l-l-ing here...haha.) I've made cheese fritters like this but they were a bit too flimsy. Yes, yes...there will be more attempts now...

These are awesome!

Next time I make bacon fruit cups, they're totally getting the bacon cheese bowl base instead. These look so much easier, and full of delicious umami. :)

Also, I'd suggest swapping order of the first two pictures so the better-looking one comes up first. The colorful salad looks good, and it's better-lit.

And another thing - dump the hot cheese/bacon circle into a muffin pan for easy shaping. You can do more in parallel this way, too. Yes, I have too many bacon thoughts.
crapsoup (author)  canida1 year ago
all good ideas!

^ me in shock of the awesomeness of what this is.
