Bacon Weave.....

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hey everyone! got a question.  made a couple fatty's a few weeks ago, everything was great!  Here's a my problem.  I want to make the weave bigger than the length of the strips of bacon, all the while keeping the appearnce that its still one piece.  Whats the best way to do this so it still  looks darn sexy on the outside?  :-)  thanks!

The easy way is to use 2 strips of bacon for each row joined in the middle with a small overlap on the inside. You can actually do this in both directions

What I was trying to say is that you can join 2 pieces of bacon together to make it longer just try to make sure the place you join them is under another piece of bacon going the other direction in the weave so the joint is covered and held together by the other strip of bacon.

 

If you need more explanation send me a PM with your # and I will call you

or make sure that the seam is covered by the bacon runing perpendicular to the seamed piece. never see it if covered up...

All you have to do is picture a basket  and make the bacon look like that image.
