Nick over at Dude Foods isn’t a believer in “understated” cooking. Case in point, the man likes his bacon a lot (obviously) so he went ahead and made a burger featuring two hearty, bacon-weaved buns.
Here’s what went into the Bacon Weave Breakfast Burger:
So, I opened up a couple packages of bacon, created a couple square bacon weaves and then put them in my oven at 400° for about 20 minutes. Once my two bacon weaves were done I placed an upside down bowl over each one and traced around it with a knife, thus creating the two circular bacon weaves that I needed for my “bun.” After that was done, I grilled up a 1/3 pound ground beef burger, melted a slice of cheese on top of it, added a sunny side up egg to the equation and I had myself a nice little Bacon Weave Breakfast Burger!
Now is that pure culinary genius or anarchic cooking at its finest? I leave that up to you to decide. I have to go now. I think my cholesterol just shot up a hundred points after looking at that bacon burger pic for more than a minute.

Unless the bacon doesn’t get crispy when you cook the roll. Then it might be kinda gross.
Robert Downey Jr.’s wife recently turned 40 and Iron Man came up with a wonderful way to celebrate. In addition to throwing a star-studded party with the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow and Gwen Stefani, he had everyone sing happy birthday as she was presented with a bacon cake. It was made of maple bacon, chocolate bacon, bacon bits, bacon jam and vanilla cake. There was also a bacon-filled brunch served by Hapa SF and Bacon Bacon.
Guess Mr. and Mrs. Iron Man really like their bacon.

Finally, we have proof that bacon is good for you…well, sort of.
Researchers at ETH Zurich have concluded that diets rich in niacin (aka Vitamin B3) can help you live longer after tests with roundworms resulted in a lifespan that was one-tenth longer than usual.
It just so happens that bacon is high in niacin.
It gets better. Professor Michael Ristow, who headed the study, also said “Niacin tricks the body into believing that it is exercising – even when this is not the case.”
Despite these findings, we don’t recommend sitting on the couch in a tracksuit eating bacon for exercise. Meat sweats aren’t the same thing as jogging sweats.
Full details on the study are available on ETH Life.
