  • The Baco - Taco in a Bacon Shell

    This was touted as a horribly unhealthy concession snack online, but I just thought YUM! Likely would be a huge calorie bomb so wouldn't be a staple, but thought I would post it for fun - This is the baco. A taco with a bacon shell.

    I suppose you'd make this by placing bacon in an oven supported by some aluminum to create the shape?

    Wow, that sounds great! I bet it would be fabulous stuffed with carnitas and lots of grilled veggies.

      I'll have mine with finely shredded cabbage, avocadoes, red onion and salsa made from vine ripened tomatoes. I'll have to make it this summer when I harvest my tomatoes.

        Wow. I'm not much of a bacon eater, but that's such a super idea.

        Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

          Perfecting this at home just got priority status on my Weekend To Do list.

            I'm not even a bacon fan but damn. Must try.

              Can anyone think of something commonly found around the home that would be a good mold for the bacon?

                They have taco shell tongs that you can place a corn tortilla in to deep-fry at home for home-cooked taco shells. Would work great with bacon, but hmm...deep-fried bacon...are we going too far?

                  Perfect! Just set it on a cookie sheet and bake away.

                    I made these last night. I ended up taking a roasting pan with handles, and tying wire from end to end on the handles, twice. The wires were about half an inch apart. Then I draped the bacon over the wires, creating a bit of a squared off bottom area for the shell. All of the drippings collected in the roaster to be used for future cooking, so that was nice. The bacon came out well; crispy and well-done. I made fish tacos, and much like fish chowder, the bacon super good with the fish. So...a winner all around. I did wrap a large romaine leaf around the bacon shell just in case of of a crumbly mess. I didn't have any problems but my husband's fell apart several times.

                    Thanks for sharing!
