What goes good with meat? More meat. And we’ve got just the recipe to make that dream a reality. It’s called the Turkey Bacon Taco, and it’s a protein packed Taco which’ll have all other meals bowing their heads and packing their bags in shame.
14 Slice of Extra Lean Turkey Bacon (Amount may vary depending on thickness of your bacon)
4 ounces of cooked & shredded boneless skinless Chicken
2 Pint Glasses
Tongs (Make sure they’re completely metal – you don’t want any plastic, rubber or wood in your oven)
Spinach or Lettuce
How to make a Bacon Weave
Begin by laying your bacon strips horizontally. We were able to fit 8
strips horizontally but this may vary depending on the size of your
Turkey Bacon. Between 6-8 strips either horizontally or vertically for
us has always yielded great results.
Start at the top, fold back every other strip to the left. Lay one strip vertically down the middle.
Unfold the bacon to the right.
Start with the second strip down, fold back every other strip to the left.
Lay a strip vertically making sure it is snug with the folded strips. Now unfold the strips to the right.
Keep repeating steps until you come to the end of your weave.
Now the left side. Start with the second strip down; fold back every
other strip to the right. Lay a strip vertically, and unfold the bacon
back over to the left.
Repeat until you are done! As you can see, we ended up with 8 strips
horizontally and 6 vertically. This results in a good sized Taco.
Cooking the Bacon Taco
Begin by pre-heating your oven to 400° degrees
Fahrenheit. Place the Cookie Pan containing your Bacon Weave once the
oven is heated up for about 15 minutes and then take out the bacon
weave. Now, place an upside down bowl over
it and trace around it with a knife until you’re left with a circular bacon weave.
Once finished, take out your two pint glasses and tongs (you want
metal tongs – remember, no rubber, plastic or wood) and stack the tongs
across the two glasses. Carefully lay the bacon weave over the tongs and
put them back into the oven for another 15 minutes.
Next, take the Taco out of the oven and carefully remove it from the
(hot!) tongs. Fill it up with your 4 ounces of chicken and whatever else
you’d like to throw on top and you’re finished!
