Picture of Squeez Bacon
ThinkGeek is a wonderful website. If you haven't heard of it, check it out. I love it, but one time they pulled a cruel trick on me. You see, ThinkGeek has a history of pulling April Fools jokes, ever since 2001. When I first found the site, some time around 2008 or so, I'd check it at least once a wek or so to look at cool products. Then, in 2009, on April 1st I checked the website. And I found the best thing that would ever happen to me.  Squeezable bacon. I was going to order 500 of these things. Then, in a couple days, I checked back and my heart broke. It was an April Fool's joke. I almost cried. Eventually I got over it, but I always had the thought of squeezable baconin the back of my head. Then, when I saw this contest, I thought, "What cool thing could I do with bacon?" Finally, I had my "aha!" moment. Squeez Bacon. Sure, it was a fictional joke from the past, but I could make it work.... but I couldn't. Not for a couple weeks or so. It took me several tries, because so many different ideas failed. But, as Edison said, I didn't fail 10 or so times, I just found 10 ways that didn't work. And trust me, did they not work. Sometimes it wasn't squeezable, other times it tasted terrible; but it was always something. After forever, I had my idea, tried, and it worked. I felt like I won lotto. I had discovered how to make squeezable bacon. With this instructable, I am going to share my treasure with the Instructables community.

The extrusion slot of an empty, squeezable mayo bottle would make it look more like bacon strips and less like... well. ;) I'm actually glad that you can't buy this commercially, because I LOVE me some BLTs and I'd end up eating waay too many! Yummm
is the Maltodextrin absolutely nessecary?
If so, how much do you need? Is it very expensive? How much is it usually?

If you put your bacon mixture in a large ziplock and then cut the corner off you could squeeze it all into the bottle, no muss no fuss :D

plus if you mixed the flour/water solution in the bag, you wouldn't even have a bowl to wash!

I wanna try this with turkey bacon. Why? It's better for you and when you cook it, it gets crispy quicker AND doesn't shrink as much.
