SLBS (Single link bacon snack) - though I'm not sure if this classifies as a snack or an edible challenge. Perhaps this is the no-carb alternative to the Fool's Gold Loaf.

They should deep-fry it after rolling it up. And then top it with candy sprinkles.

And if you're wishing you could be bacon-wrapped, there are many bacon scarves available (as a bonus, the last two come with eggs).

If you slice it into 6 servings and eat 1 serving then you are only consuming 2 pieces of bacon. That's perfectly acceptable.

Step 1: Weave bacon
Step 2: PROFIT!!!

That said, why weave the bacon if you are going to slice it? Why not just roll cheese into a single slice?

You couldn't do that with my favorite bacon - 1/3 inch cross cut. Cooks down to delicious bacon jerky.

Wrapping stuff in bacon is inefficient. So is adding bacon flavoring to food. What if genetic engineers could alter human DNA so that our tongues were made of bacon?

Gross.

Why would you ruin it with cheese?

Is it a problem that when I saw I'd already followed the FPP link, I assumed it was this? And only realized it wasn't when I saw that I'd also followed this link? The internet has too much delicious bacon.

How about stuffing it with a cheese omelette?

If you live in Ontario, you owe it to yourself to try Cherry Pink Farms bacon. It is incredible and often actually works out to a better deal by weight than the cheaper stuff. I'm still salivating over the pile I ate new year's morning.

No need to be spartan. After that, dip it in chocolate sauce and drizzle with schmaltz.

I was all ready to tell everyone about how I am so over bacon and that ham is truly where it's at, and then I clicked the link.

Bacon is so over that it's even tired to profess how over bacon you are. The only thing left is to wait until all the porkfat-engulfers are all dead and then start civilization anew.

The smell of bacon cooking smells like someone dropped a slimy old boot wrapped in feces laden pig intestines in a vat of boiling leper smegma. Seriously, the basement cafe in my office building sometimes makes a batch of that that wafts up into the lobby. I should sue those bastards for all that olfactory abuse. It really smells like post-coital bubonic plague sufferers.

Speaking as someone whose two favorite foods are bacon and cheese....

All this getting creative and stuff just takes time away from cooking and actually eating bacon.

a friend of our made this at a party, and had various girls rubbing up against him while we were all waiting for the dish to finish baking, each of them blatantly using their feminine charms to get first in line for the awesomeness. That alone was, I think, more worthwhile to him than the finished product.

Depending on which browser I'm using, these clowns are either the second or fourth hit on a google search for bacon. What?

Yeah, I like bacon and all, but this is kinda gross. Look at it, all slimy and dripping. Yeccchh. Plus, eating one of these probably takes like 5 years off your life expectancy.

Don't forget to season this with bacon salt.

Seems goodness abounds!

My 25 y.o. nephew decided to try his hand at a bacon concotion At the local pork store where all kinds of fresh cuts of pig goodness are available they sell big slabs 'o bacon. Seems these slabs were taunting him every time he went in. What could they be used for?

Not being one to ask questions of the locals, nephew decided to purchase a big slab and grill it = bacon steak!

Procedure: Place slab on grill and cook on low for an hour, maybe two. Watch pretty closely, seems to be shrinking and gaining some translucency. Keep watching, ooohhh, dandelions... over there..... come back to find grill aflame.

Rescue baconcharsteak and cut off most of offending burnt stuff. Eat. Mainly salty. Something like very, very salty fried chicken cooked in old oil.

Pork wins round one. Round two will encompass soaking slab 'o bacon in water first. Maybe will resort to broiling in oven to prevent flame-up.

Even though my family is mostly vegetarian, I can't give up bacon. I am hardpressed to think of something more tasty than bacon. Unicorn bacon, maybe.

I make my own bacon but dude, this is gross.

That's nothing compared to bacon-wrapped scrapple.

(I'm from Maryland so Scrapple is basically the greatest food ever for me, I've even been to the town it was supposedly invented in)

They call it.... THE WIDOWMAKER.

They also call a blockage of the left main coronary artery or proximal left anterior descending coronary artery of the heart a "widowmaker". Making it one and the same as this recipe.

WHITE SAUCE!!!

White sauce is horrifying. It's like eating paste. My mother used to serve it over plain baked fish fillets. Bacon would have been much better.

I think I would like just one bite of that. Just one. A second bite would make me retch.

If you want to weave bacon, save half of your coronary artery and at least go for the BLT - in a Cup! It's got greens...

Ah, bacon on the internet - it almost never fails to disappoint. Being from the UK, every time I follow a link about bacon - only to discover that it features what I would call streaky bacon rather that proper bacon (Canadian bacon to N. Americans, I suppose) - my heart drops a little.

That said, this looks delicious.

But it could have been so much more...

First, to martinc6: SCRAPPLE!!! Also from MD, but live in Pittsburgh, now, and man... I had no idea that scrapple was a Maryland thing. I thought they'd have that stuff everywhere. So many people don't know what I'm talking about when I mention scrapple. Stores have it, sometimes, but, well, sigh.

2nd, the end result, Step 5: Roll immediately reminded me of this.
