How to make a bacon weave (tutorial)
 
Start with a pound of bacon. I like the thin strips so they crisp up better. Lay out eight strips side by side on the cutting board.

Now fold every other strip back in half. In this case, from the top I folded back strip one, three, five and seven.

Next, lay a strip of bacon perpendicular to the other eight, right up against the fold.

Bring one, three, five and seven back over and fold two, four, six and eight in half over the top of the perpendicular strip.

Lay another strip up against the fold,

bring two, four six and eight back over the top of that piece,

and fold one, three, five and seven back and lay in another strip.

Continue the process until you get to the end, you should have the knack by now.

When you get to the end, start working in the other direction.

And so on, 'til you're done. Itís as easy as that!

Thanks, I was making one for the Fatty anyway, so I figured I'd take some extra photos and share the process.

Thanks! Can we do bacon macrame next?:laugh:
Goes great with the cutting board btw.

That's the way that I do mine except that I put a piece of Saran wrap or waxed paper under the bacon -- easier to roll it up (lazy man's mod).
