After watching a certain internet video sensation where copious amounts of bacon are used, I decided to try my hand at some epic foods. This is my first creation, the Heart Attack.
Step 1: Prepare Yourself!!!
The Heart Attack consists of two ingredients, bacon and cheese. The specific type of these two ingredients (i.e. smoked bacon vs. maple cured) is up to your particular preference. Mine happens to be maple cured with sharp cheddar cheese.
1 lb Bacon (thick cut gives just enough slices, regular cut leaves some extra) (not pictured)
1/2 lb Cheese (shredded melts nicely)
1 Frying pan
1 Grease container
ample paper towels
Step 2: Weave It Up!
Take your bacon and weave it into a mat of deliciousness. It's easiest to do this directly on the frying pan you'll be using so you don't have to move it around. Begin frying. You'll want to do this on a slightly lower setting than normal to ensure it can heat all the way through.
Step 3: Flip That @($*
I apologize for the flagrant use of symbols in the title....
Flipping can be difficult. I've done it using two spatulas before, but it takes a lot of patience to keep the mat together. This time, i used a pan the same size to sandwich the bacon, and then flip it over the sink. I did drain the grease before I flipped it to be safe.
Step 4: Cheese It Up
pretty simple, add about a half pound of cheese to one side of the bacon mat. Also, increase the temperature a little bit. As the cheese starts to melt, flip the empty side of the mat over onto the cheese.
Step 5: Let It Sizzle
Leave the mat to fry for a minute, and the flip it over. Let it sit for another minute or two, then remove it from the pan and set onto some paper towels on a plate. Let it cool for a minute, and then go to town!!!
Step 6: Retrospective
This is probably the most unhealthy thing i've made for myself. I do not recommend this to anyone. It will give you a heart attack, maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but someday...
