I was lucky enough to be a judge at the BaconCamp where this appeared and let’s just say the judges were totally blown away. A first I was thinking this was going to be difficult to handle, hard to eat, etc. But it wasn’t. It was perfectly formed and super easy to eat.
The Bacone is exactly what you’d think; a cone made from bacon. Inside though, they put scrambled eggs, top that with country gravy and then top that with a biscuit. Um. Yum?!
Since we judges had to take at least one bite or sip of 44 dishes that day, I told myself I would only take one bite of the Bacone. Then just one more. And well, its good; so one more can’t hurt. I stopped at four bites. I offered my Bacone (with a big ole chunk out of the side) and to my surprise several people in the audience wanted to take it from me. Hilarious.
I’ll say what I said then that I believe now; “McDonald’s should be selling this thing.”
From the recipe page here is what you need to make your own Bacone:
- A strainer and a stapler to make the forms
- A fryer to fry the bacon
- Thick bacon – thin bacon disintegrates
- Aluminum foil – to keep the bacon from sticking
- Leatherman – because all cool projects involve a Leatherman
Here’s what you’ll need to really do the bacone justice:
- Hash browns
- Country Gravy
Great work Christian and Melissa. Now, go throw your own BaconCamp and amaze us with the creations you make.
