Introduction: Bacon Cheese Bowls

Bacon Contest

First Prize in the
Bacon Contest

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

Step 1: Things You Will Need

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.

Step 4: Shaping Your Bowl

1. Remove from oven and let cool for about 30 to 45 seconds.
2. Gently peal your cheese circles off of the parchment paper. I like to use a spatula to make sure it
    doesn't fall apart.
3. Place circles onto the bottom of a glass or bowl, then gently use you fingers to form your bowl
     shape. (AFTERTHOUGHT: if you cut your parchment paper in half first, you might be able to leave
     them on the paper when shaping them into bowls. This might help with reducing the chances
     for damage)
4. Let set for 3 to 5 minutes to harden.
5. Fill with the food of your choice and serve.

Note: there are other ways to mold your "shell" as well.

1. Lay you circle over the handle of a cooking pan to make "Taco" shaped shells.
2. If you have your "filler foods" ready, you can place them on the circle (after cooling), then use
    parchment paper to wrap them into a rolls (sorry, no picture for this one.)
3. You can break your circles into pieces and serve them like chips, or as toppings for other foods.
4. You can make silly art with it.

Can't wait to try these crunchy delights- good going with turkey bacon! Like your shaping techniques too!

That looks awesome! Where do you get the brick of Dubliner?!

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.
