Flashback: Bacon Weave Sandwich

This post originally appeared January 14, 2009 on SahmRamblings.com.

When I was pregnant, my fail-safe food was bacon. We had BLTs at least once a week. I never experienced morning sickness, but I really couldn’t stomach meat. It was terrible for our health but at least I could enjoy the bacon.

Well, we had BLTs tonight and I was reminded of a post I wanted to do last month but got too busy for! (No, I’m not pregnant.) (March 2014 edit/addition: Reminder, this was originally posted in 2009. I wasn’t pregnant then. I’m not pregnant now. Certainly don’t want anyone trying to read between the lines.)

DH stumbled on a blog post about weaving bacon. Sorry that I can’t give that blogger credit because I don’t know who it was. He surprised me one day by making them and even taking pictures of the steps. (Aren’t DH’s the best?) I thought it was pretty cool so we decided to share the bacon weave process. How often can you make a bacon sandwich and know there’s bacon in every bite?

Here’s how to create a bacon weave:

Easy Bacon Weave Sandwich - Step 1 - SahmReviews.com

Three pieces of bacon

Cut each in half

Easy Bacon Weave Sandwich - Step 3 - SahmReviews.com

Weave them together

Easy Bacon Weave Sandwich - Step 4 - SahmReviews.com

Cook them like normal bacon

Easy Bacon Weave Sandwich - Step 5 - SahmReviews.com

Flip them over like normal bacon (notice how they are maintaining their shape and the normal bacon isn’t?)

Easy Bacon Weave Sandwich - Step 6 - SahmReviews.com

Drain them off (oh, like normal bacon)

Add them to a sandwich. If you use normal bread, the bacon weave will cover the bread perfectly. No more concerns about bites that are all sandwich and no bacon. If three pieces of bacon aren’t enough for your sandwich, then add two weaves to it!

DH – This is an awesome trick. Thanks for sharing it!

March 2014 Addition: This is perfect for sandwiches that include bacon as a layer such as BLTs but also works great on burgers. Want to see another fun creation that DH made? Check out his post for corn dog sushi.

    this IS the only true way to enjoy bacon on a sandwich. unless you have a grinder and then you’d make a weave rectangle of bacon.

  29. Emily says:

    You may have just revolutionized the way I eat bacon! Will this work in the oven too?

  31. That is pretty awesome – never considered it, but I know I would love it for sho

  32. susan says:

    Oh my this is amazing!!! A great way to have bacon in every bite of your sandwich!

  33. Roechelle says:

    I think that I am the only one in the meat-eating world who doesn’t like the taste of bacon…….however, my hubs would love this πŸ™‚

    1. Scott says:

      You’ve never had GOOD bacon then! There is a difference!

  34. Ok, that wins for coolest thing ever! Awesome!

  35. WHAT!!! – I have to PIn this for later…how ingenious!!! Who would have thought?

  36. It seems a shame to cover up such a pretty bacon pattern with bread. Decorating with bacon. Who knew. πŸ˜‰

  37. Kimberly says:

    Mmm bacon. Not sure who will like this more. Me or my 4 year old who can eat bacon constantly. Now I want a BLT done this way.

  38. Dominique says:

    My boyfriend is a bacon fanatic and he is going to be thrilled when I cook this for lunch tomorrow!!!

  39. My husband would love this! I will have to make it for him πŸ™‚

  40. Samantha says:

    This Is so freakin fun!!

  41. Rhapsody says:

    That’s a really cute idea! I don’t like bacon, so I won’t be trying to make these, but I like how they look. Your husband is impressive to take it upon himself to make bacon weave sandwiches. Lucky girl!

  42. I love that idea! Lately I have been making bacon hearts, but this fills up the whole slice of bread!

  43. That’s genius! I have to share this with my husband. I’m not much of a meat-eater, but he sure is. Thanks!

  44. Renee Hutchinson says:

    I really like this idea. I hate how the bacon doesn’t cover your sandwich. I bet this would be big hit with BLTs.

  45. natosha says:

    Bacon makes anything better lol. Great post, love that style of creating a weaved sandwich with bacon.

  46. I love that. I have seen something like that on Pinterest.

  47. MomStart says:

    You’re killing me here! I want this sandwich so badly right now. Haha!!! YUM and who knew bacon could look so pretty?

  48. Emily says:

    This is such a genius way to add bacon to sandwiches! It’s always a bummer to only get a few bites of bacon in the middle instead of thourough.

  49. Micaya says:

    Wow I must try this!!!

  50. Michele says:

    I definitely like this solution! When I eat a BLT I want to taste bacon with every bite I take. The biggest plus–even I could weave the bacon!!

  51. Terry says:

    Well isn’t that a cool idea? I am going to try it the next time I make bacon. It might be awhile. We are in a cabin in Montana and only 2 of the burners on the stove work. They have a new stove on order, but we may be gone before it gets here.

  52. You had me at bacon! This is great because you can garnish sandwiches with it and it is neat and not messy.

  53. William Wilson says:

    I’ve never tried that. I can’t wait. There’s five of us here and we all love bacon!

  54. Katie H. says:

    This looks really cool!

  55. Amy Lovell says:

    What a fantastic idea thanks!

  56. Ana says:

    I love sandwich. Also I love the way you have shared amazing information about sandwiches.
    Thanks for sharing it. Hope it would be useful for me.

  57. sharon says:

    Just tried this tonight. I was able to weave 4 pieces (8 halves) for him and 3 (6 halves) for me. Brilliant. I bake mine.

    1. Scott says:

      Fantastic! I should update the post as I found another perfect use for the same weaves. My daughters like hot dogs, but LOVE hot dogs with bacon. Bacon tends to fall out of the bun, but if you roll this weave around the cooked hot dog, it’ll never fall out!

  58. Michael Boone says:

    This is such a brilliant idea! I must try this soon πŸ™‚

  59. Carol Nine says:

    What a great idea! I’ll have to try this the next time we have bacon.

  60. Mia Rose says:

    What a super idea to have the perfect sandwich. BLT’s are a favorite around my house and this would make it even better.

  61. Lily Kwan says:

    This bacon sandwich looks very tasty. Thanks for sharing!
