If there was one dish that took everybody by surprise at BaconCamp, it was the Bacone. This was the creation of Christian Williams and his girlfriend Melissa.

The Bacone in action

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:

  • Eggs
  • Hash browns
  • Cheese
  • Country Gravy
  • Biscuits

Great work Christian and Melissa. Now, go throw your own BaconCamp and amaze us with the creations you make.

    Which end do you start eating at? This problem is reminiscent of the chocolate Easter bunny conundrum…. I fancy holding the biscuit and chowing down from the tip (my word, that sounds phallic!), but I s'pose you never know until the thing is in your greasy hands. I hope to meet the formidable Bacone someday, though hopefully not is a dark alley.

  8. Christian Says:
    April 28th, 2009 at 9:22 pm

    I always say that the first bite and the last bite are the best. In the first bite (taken where the biscuit meets the 'cone), you get a little bit of everything. In the last bite, there's nothing but concentrated bacon. It's delicious.

  9. Benjamin G Says:
    April 29th, 2009 at 1:03 am

    Of course! Held like an ice cream cone, how could one resist (though I'd bet anything you've seen people try to attack it with cutlery, a most inappropriate idea.) I knew from first sight that the Bacone would lead to greasy hands.

    Another question for the guru: what is your preferred beverage pairing? OJ? Black tea or coffee? Bacone virgins are drooling to find out….

  10. Bacn.com Says:
    April 29th, 2009 at 2:01 am

    It should be noted that Christian is the *creator* of the famed Bacone … we just documented it … :-) Thanks Christian!

    I prefer to pair with OJ … it helps offset the nitrates/nitrites in the bacon so you don't die (true story) … :-)

  11. Bacn.com Says:
    May 26th, 2009 at 3:23 am

The more I really look at it the more I am confident it does not conduct itself like a true solid tissue cancer.
