I want to eat those. Very badly.

But I don't want to be the one to make them.

Those looked so good, it made me rethink my silly vegetarian ways. So I made them with fakin' bacon (self-link). I readily acknowledge the bacon heresy, but they were still tasty.

I'll have to try it, but I would be very surprised if it goes over as well as my bacon condom did at my last party.

Needs to be filled with fried bananas and butter and called the Elvis Cup.

There must be many other household items and/or party supplies that can be replaced with a bacon equivalent. hmmmm

fried bananas, peanut butter, and maybe a couple of croutons.

I'm trying to make these this weekend. I imagine the real trick is in weaving the raw bacon but it shouldn't be THAT difficult.

The future of materials science will be woven bacon, bacon balls, and nanobacon tubules. I think I read that in Popular Baconics.

That might be good if you added some finely chopped bacon to the mayo.

This means you could make a pizza with bacon crust. I smell a patent (and it smells like bacon).

Is there nothing this magical bacon can't do?

MMM. Put it on a bacon saucer and make a fork and knife out of bacon to eat it with. Also, instead of salad, fill it with...prosciutto! (may substitute bacon).

Even the Christmas tree can be baconized.

If Archie McPhee's comes out with bacon ornaments, I want the credit. I called and submitted the idea to them in November. Of course, it was too late for this (last) year.

I want those a lot. I think I'm going to have to put in tomatoes this year.

As a Jewish vegetarian I find this incredibly offensive.

But then a big part of me says, "can you do this with fake bacon?"

Dude, you don't fill this with *lettuce*. You fill it with *mashed potatoes*. And you put cheddar cheese and sour cream on top of it.

Mmmm.

Mmm. Served with a refreshing cup of hot fat.
It looks like a bowl made of human skin.

DISCLAIMER: I am not a vegetarian but never eat animals without wings or fins.

The bacon cups are amazing in their ingeniousness and decadence. Does anyone else remember the picture in an orange-covered (pulp paper) Guinness Book of World Records of the guy with over 100 cigarettes in his mouth, smoking them simultaneously? He had long dark brown hair and aviator glasses if I remember rightly.

I remember a rumor that he died a month after that stunt. That's what I think of bacon cups.

(This is only image I could find of something comparable.)

Last night I made meatloaf for dinner. I found a recipe (it actually was Martha's) that recommended covering the top of the loaf with bacon instead of ketchup.

I brought this idea up with my wife.

She was against it.

I put ketchup on the meatloaf.

I fear my manhood has died.

# “The "totally ruined by lettuce" tag is missing, jonson.”

Come on guys, have you ever tasted bacon and arugula together? Missing the “flavor synergy” tag is more like it.

I haven’t scarfed up any bacon since before most of the baconites here were born, and I never missed it until about five minutes ago, when I saw those tasty bacon bowls. Maybe its presque-vue or something happening all over again because I got the taste and mouth feel. Nevertheless its not a good idea to eat pigs nowadays for a variety of reasons.

bradth27: I can tell you from experience that there is absolutely nothing better than a bacon wallet.

So true. I sport one of those as well. My favorite is when people want to sniff it. I got it at the Mütter Museum, a must-see if you have even the slightest macabre streak and you're in Philadelphia.

And, let's face it, if you've been in the city of Philadelphia for more than 10 minutes, you have likely developed a taste for the macabre or run screaming from the city.

And I want bacon cups.

I was revolted by this until I saw the fake-on version. Then I wept when I realized we didn't have any.

And I plan to find a way to create a quiche with this; the crust was always in the way, AMIRITE?

I have these genius friends who knit. I can't knit, I'm just really bad at it. But this bacon weaving, THIS is where I feel I can be a Viking,
Even if I'm not a Viking, I'll still have bacon. And that's so much tastier than yarn.
