This is one of the dishes I made for Bacon Camp SF 2010 - it got 4s and 5s from the judges, so is guaranteed to be tasty! If you're a fan of bacon or fruit, give it a try.
This was inspired by Jess's BLT cups (bacon cups filled with lettuce, sliced tomatoes, and fresh garlicky croutons) were a hit at 2009's Thanksgiving II: Bacongiving. Thanks, Jess!
ETA: and you can see some great BLT cups on Not Martha, too. Apparently trebuchet03's bacon placemat was an inspiration!
