It’s a breakfast bacon cone filled with scrambled eggs and cheese. Yes, bacon dreams do come true.
Make cone form out of aluminum foil
Wrap Classic Cut Farmland® bacon strips around foil cone, starting at the cone’s opening
Overlap each strip to create a cone with no openings
At the tip of the cone, fold bacon together in a point
Place it in an oven-safe dish
Cook 15-18 minutes in a 350°F oven
Cone should come out crispy, and pull right off the aluminum foil
Put whatever you want inside your cone
We recommend: Scrambled eggs, green peppers
fresh pico de gallo, hash-browns and cheese
Bacon and chocolate – we always hoped these two would get together.

1 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 lbs. dark chocolate
1/2 cup corn syrup

2 1/2 cups heavy cream
1.Cook bacon until crisp; drain. Chop 6 slices cooked bacon and combine with toasted nuts.

water and butter. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
Heat to 280°F on candy thermometer.
3.Stir combined macadamia nuts and bacon, and vanilla into saucepan.
Continue heating until temperature reaches 300°F. Stir in baking soda; immediately

One of the best foods on the planet just got crispier, crunchier and even more
crave-worthy – thanks to bacon.
Start with 5 strips of Farmland® Classic Cut Hickory Smoked bacon laid vertically as close together as possible
Place bacon strip horizontally at top of five strips
Build weave by pulling back vertical strips 2 and 4 over the horizontally placed bacon strip
Place another bacon strip horizontally, then pull back strips 2 and 4 on top of the second horizontal strip
Fold up vertical strips 1, 3 and 5 over the second horizontal strip
Place another strip horizontally, then bring vertical strips 1, 3 and 5 back down on top of the third horizontal strip
Continue alternating folds until weave is complete
Find a large circular shape (like a round plastic container) and place it on top of the
weave to establish a pattern to cut around
Cut around the circle – and feel free to nibble on the leftover bacon trim
Lay a metal utensil across a bacon pan or casserole dish – something that can catch bacon grease –
and lay your bacon weave on top of the utensil so that it folds over and grease can drip into the
pan/dish. Note: you can simply lay your bacon weave on the oven rack, as long as you have an
oven-safe pan under it to catch grease
Cook the shell at 400°F for 5-15 minutes,checking every 5 minutes
Fill your bacon weave taco with whatever you like; we reco avocado, lettuce, pico, and pulled pork
Don’t tell your mom, but you just found a meatloaf recipe that’s better than hers.
