Is everything better with Bacon?

I use to believe so! I love me some bacon! Until I saw this!


That my friends is a bacon FRUIT CUP! A WHAT! I don't know about this one! Who fruits their bacon? Do you?

See now if this were me, and if I could still eat this kind of food, my bacon cup would be filled with eggs and hashbrowns. Now doesn't that sound a tad bit more YUMMY?

So here are the ingredients for this bacon fruit cup, I'd be interested to see if anyone actually would try to make this.

Ingredients: 2 lbs Bacon (long skinny pieces are better than short fat pieces) Fresh basil leaves Homemade aioli (substitute: store-bought mayo + lemon juice) Fresh mango, cubed Large avocado, cubed 1/4-1/2 cup powdered sugar 1 teaspoon cocoa powder 1 large onion, sliced into thin rings 1 tablespoon brown sugar.

Tools & Materials: muffin tin baking tray large enough to catch all the greese.

Here's how to make the cute little cups, because I know you are just DYING to know. I was!!

Preheat oven to 500F. Turn your muffin tin upside-down, and place it on top of a baking dish to catch grease drips. If you don't have a large enough pan, get creative with aluminum foil - there's going to be LOTS of grease, and you don't want it smoking and burning on the bottom of the oven. A double sheet of foil with a folded-up lip will probably do the trick.



When the bacon cups are cool, carefully pry them off of the muffin tin. Lift from the bottom to avoid cracking the bacon, or otherwise damaging the shape.

Your fingers should do the job, but a silicone spatula can also be handy. I used a flexible silicone pan, so was able to fold the muffin cups inward away from the bacon for even easier removal.

Place the finished bacon cups on paper towels to finish draining and cooling.


OMG, it's like HEAVEN on a Paper TOWEL!!

Then all you do is fill your bacon cup up with whatever yummy goodness you wish. If you dare make the fruit cups, I totally want to hear about it!

My husband would totally love this. He would go bonkers for it. I am not a HUGE bacon lover, and honestly I don't like it overly crunchy. And I HATE the smell it leaves in the house for three days.

Tammy said...

We love bacon at our house but not with fruit! My husband makes a bacon weave, it's great to put on a sandwich!

I'd be too tempted to eat the bacon straight out of the oven...never filling them with anything!

Looks appetizing and sounds very tempting, although I would have never made the connection on my own.

Salty and Sweet is always a good combination. Has to taste better than that popcorn flavored ice cream I saw at the supermarket the other day! Stopping in from SITS!

Evergreen said...

Looks great and probably good with the fruit too, but not the fruit they had in the photo. How about some cut up melon?

Cassie said...

Looks good but if I ever tried it, it would have to be with the eggs and hash browns.

yonca said...

I'm not a big fan of bacon.My son loves turkey bacon.
