Crispy Stuffed Bacon Baskets

Crispy Stuffed Bacon Baskets

Bacon is probably one of the main reason why you are not a vegetarian.

Ingredients:
  • 12 slices bacon
  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 cups spinach
  • 2/3 cup cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon pepper

  • How to prepare:
    1. Let’s get started on the bacon basket. Preheat your oven to 350F.
    2. We need to make a bacon weave. Start by laying 6 slices of bacon flat. You will need to make them a bit more close together than in the picture, but this is normally how I start.
    3. Weave your bacon. Over, under, over, under, and continue to do that until your bacon is fully weaved.
    4. When you’re finished you should have a full weaved sheet of bacon.
    5. Cut your bacon weave through the middle. This should give you 6 slices of bacon per weave.
    6. Cut your weave horizontally, and through the middle. This yields 4 smaller bacon weaves with 3 pieces of bacon each.
    7. Grab a cupcake tray and line each corner with a piece of foil. If you’re making more of these, try to leave some space between each of the baskets. I’ve had them stick together before.
    8. Lay your weaves on top of each piece of foil.
    9. You will have to do a little bit more work here, making sure each piece of bacon is tucked around the cupcake tray. Try to keep the weave in tact.
    10. Put your bacon baskets in the oven for 50 minutes. Previously, I have taken them out at 35 minutes – right when they just finish cooking – but I prefer them to stay in and get a bit crisper.
    11. Let them cool for 10 minutes. Put your oven to BROIL setting.
    12. While the bacon baskets are cooling, crack 4 eggs into a bowl.
    13. Add your 2 Tbsp. heavy cream to the mixture.
    14. Scramble the eggs well, until everything is combined.
    15. Put a pan on the stove and add 1 Tbsp. Olive Oil.
    16. Add your spinach and let it cook down.
    17. Once it’s started cooking, add some pepper. I don’t add salt because the bacon baskets will have a salty flavor.
    18. Let your spinach cook down until this point.
    19. Add your eggs to the mixture and turn your heat to low. DON’T TOUCH THE EGGS!
    20. Once your eggs have started to cook on the bottom, now you can mix them. I take them off the stove at this point and allow them to finish the cooking process through residual heat.
    21. Get your bacon baskets ready.
    22. Fill your bacon baskets with the egg and spinach mixture.
    23. Top them with cheese.
    24. Put them in the oven on broil, I use the second highest setting.
    25. You should start to see the cheese bubbling on the top, that means they have a few more minutes left.
    26. Remove them from the oven when you’re satisfied with the crust of cheese. Remember that it hardens a little bit as it cools.
    27. Serve and enjoy this deliciousness!
