Blackberry Bacon Cobbler

I think I may have been watching a bit too much Epic Meal Time when I made this!  I'd been picking blackberries during my lunch breaks, and trying to decide just what to do with them, when at the grocery store, I heard the bacon calling to me . . .

I combined my mom's cobbler recipe with that delicious mana from a pig's belly, and came up with this delightful little treat!

Step 1: Ingredients

This requires only six ingredients:
  • 3/4 cup of flour
  • 2 cups of white sugar
  • 1/2 cup of butter
  • 3-5 cups of blackberries 
  • 18-20 strips of bacon
  • About a cup of brown sugar
Simple!

Step 2: Make Bacon Bits

First off, we need some well done bacon to crumble into the topping.

Simple cook three or four strips of bacon until they are well done, and cool them on a plate with a paper towel.  When cooled, crumble or run them through a food processor.

Step 3: Make the Topping

Mix the flour and sugar in a large mixing bowl.  Soften the butter and fold it in to the dry ingredients.  Mix it well until it's lumpy, it should stick together if you squeeze it but crumble easily.  If it seems too dry add a bit of water, but be careful, just add it a teaspoon at a time.

Finally, stir in the crumbled bacon and set aside.  

Step 4: Weave the Bacon

I learned this from Epic Meal Time:  bacon weave!

Honestly, this whole recipe started as an excuse for me to make one of these.

On a foil lined baking sheet, lay out 7-8 strips of bacon side by side.  Along one edge, fold every other strip of bacon back a bit, and lay another strip of bacon along this edge and fold the strips back over it.  

The strips it is laying along should now alternate over-under-over-under.  From the other side of the weave, fold all the under strips back, all the way to the perpendicular bacon strip.  Lay another strip next to it, fold the strips back over, and then fold back all the new under strips.  Repeat until you've got a weave!

I just found your projects because I was looking for letterboxing... so of course I had to look at the rest of your instructables. How serendipitous that I just came home with about 4 pounds of juicy, luscious blackberries... lol. I can't decide whether to start trying to carve a stamp, or bake this cobbler first! Decisions, decisions... Thank you for inspiring me on several different levels :)
