Weclome to Caveman Keto’s Recipes, today I’m going to show you how to make a Bacon Explosion!
It’s basically a meatloaf made out of
Sausage, Bacon and Cheese, so we’re going to start
by making the internal bacon weave
now people are going to think you’re crazy but I actually go through and try to grade the Bacon
you want pieces that are long and made up of one continuous strip
so the inside bacon weave is going to be a 5×6
So I’ll show you how to make that
start by laying them out in one direction, we’ll do the 5 first
ok there you have the five by six bacon weave
You’re going to bake that in the oven until
the bacon is not totally crisp, this one you’re just cooking to try
to be pretty decent because you’re going to be putting it
inside the meat so you want it to be cooked.
The next step after the initial bacon weave is to make
the meat structure so take your
cutting board
and lay down some plastic wrap and then you want to take the meat
in this case I’m using Jimmy Dean sausage,
you wanna push it
into a rectangle
Once you have your rectangle that is approximately the size of your bacon weave
you gotta put some season on top of it
and then as soon as the bacon weave is ready, we’ll put that on top of this
this point your bacon should be done, it should look approximately like this
you do want it cooked because its going to be inside the meat and it’s not going to get
a lot of heat, its not going to cook much more, but you don’t want it crisp
because we’re going to have to roll this
up, so this next part is a little
difficult, I use this fish turning spatula to try to get under the whole thing
lift her up and lay her down
alrigt, perfect, now you want a little bit on each side
so that you can close up the ends. Now the next thing is I’ve sliced some cheese
some I’m going to throw that down here as well
now you might have been wondering why we were putting down
the saran wrap well so that we can roll
it
almost like a sushi roll
so just start going here
You want to get as tight a roll as possible so that you get that spiral
So roll and work some of your way out.
Continue rolling
Now you’ve got an approximately full Bacon Explosion
What you’re going to want to do is compress the sides in a little bit
get that roll even tighter
and then we’re going to roll this up
Twist the ends
The ideas is to get it super tight
now if we want to get it even more tight
Wrap it in tin foil
this twisting compresses
the meat into a log
Set this in the refrigerator and we’re
going to
let it cool down solidify a little bit
and then we’re going to work on the bacon weave
that’s going to go on the outside
So while the log is sitting in the refrigerator
we’re going to start the second, outside bacon weave
and this time we’re going to use a 7×7
so again, we’re going to carefully start assembling a 7×7, this one is going to have to be tighter
7 is much bigger, its almost the maximum extent you can do
there you have it, this is the 7×7 and as you can see this is the maximum
you can do with this brand of bacon
maybe if you use a different kind it might be possible
so what I’m going to do now is turn this sideways
ways I’m gonna roll along this way
Apply seasoning
to this side of the bacon
Open up my roll
unroll the plastic wrap directly onto
the bacon weave
Now we can take this plastic wrap and begin to wrap the Bacon Explosion
As you can see that worked out really well
With the plastic wrap on we might
be able to get this off gracefully. So I’ve
take in the same pan handout and a little
riser so of the base because
the bacon on the bottom won’t naturally cook
Then I just need to set the entire structure on top
then pullout the excess
Then tuck in the ends
give it a nice little bunching, then you can add some additional seasoning
on outside
now you’re ready for the oven
so after an hour or so in the oven
you’re gonna have this nice golden brown crust on your bacon
and your Bacon Explosion is done, let it
rest for 5 minutes
and then slice it up!
