In this instructable, I will show you how to make a Bacon Bowl. I will also give you a review about the product I used to make these easily as well as an alternative method using a muffing pan. Bacon bowls are easy to make, and pretty cool, especially if you are a bacon lover! Let's get started!
If you have any questions or comments put them down below and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
Follow the easy steps below or watch the short video tutorial or do both!

- Kitchen spray
- The Perfect Bacon Bowl or muffin pan
- Paper towel

Step 2: Wipe It Down
First we will be using a product called the perfect bacon bowl. When I first got this I was skeptical on how good it was and if it did indeed work. So we will be using this first then later on I will explain an alternative way for making bacon bowls. We take a paper towel and spray it with cooking spray and then wipe down the plastic bacon bowl mold. They recommend to not spray it directly.
Step 3: Cut the Bacon
Next we want to cut one slice of bacon right in half.
Step 4: Make and X
Next we take the two halves and make an X over the plastic mound.
Step 5: Wrap Them
Now we take the other two full length pieces and wrap them around. After the first one is wrapped around, then you will wrap the other one around the opposite direction so it covers the seam, fat side of the bacon facing up. Now it is ready to be cooked in the microwave or baked in the oven or toaster oven. I am going to use the microwave. I will cook it on high for 2.5 minutes, then check the crispiness. If it is not crisp enough, I will cook it for another 30 seconds or so and check it.
Step 6: Fill With Toppings
Once it is done it will look something like this. Definitely not what the picture is on the box that the product comes in haha. But the product does indeed work and it makes a bacon bowl! It was super easy, great for a quick way to get creative with your bacon. Now it will take longer if you decide to bake it in the oven instead. 20 to 25 minutes or so. Then all you need to do is fill it up with some scrambled eggs, or whatever else you might like.
Step 7: Alternative Way
But let's say you are interested in making a bacon bowl but don't want to buy that product. You can try this method. Take a muffin pan, and then cook your bacon about half way, but make sure it is still nice and pliable. Then spray the inside of your muffin tin. Then just line the inside with your bacon pieces. Now crack open an egg and put it right in, then top with cheese and bake the whole thing in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes until the egg is cooked. Voila another method.
