Who doesn't want to wake up to a treasure?
This box is filled with eggs, and coins made of cheese.
Step 1: What you need
Foil- for the inside structure of the box
Eggs- for the gold inside, yarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!
Cheese sticks white and yellow -( white) for the coins / ( yellow) lock and bolts
Avocado- for the metal look around the box
Tooth picks or wood coffee stir sticks- to hold box open for presentation
BACON!!!!- any kind, just make sure you account for shrinkage during cooking
I used turkey bacon
lower fat content = less shrinkage :)
Step 2: The foil box
For the base just make four walls, but make them strong.
For the lid create supports, these will help hold the weight of the bacon once you put it on top.
Make sure the lid and the base fit together in the shape you want.
Important!!!! make sure your box can hold the weight of the bacon, add extra foil to make sure it will.
Step 3: Place bacon around box
Once it is part way cooked you should notice a little shrinkage that is a good thing :)
Now over lap your bacon as you place it around the base of your box letting the ends hang off the side
For the lid make sure to over lap and weave your bacon, it will help hold it in place
Once you have done both the base and the lid, cut the extra ends off the base ( shown in picture)
Keep extra ends you may need them later.
Place Base, Lid, and extra ends on cookie sheet back in the oven for another 20-30 min or until bacon is how you like it.
