Easy Oven-Baked Bacon Weave (Try this!)

Use this easy bacon weave recipe to make your own crispy bacon weave at home!

Easy Oven-Baked Bacon Weave

It’s no secret that I’m completely addicted to bacon. I think I’ve mentioned once or twice before how it’s easily my all time favorite food.

Usually I stick to cooking regular bacon, but on occasion I also like to mix things up a bit by cooking up a bacon weave. They’re incredible on breakfast sandwiches, BLT’s, burgers, pancakes/waffles, or just a fun addition to pretty much any bacon-centric recipe. Not to mention your kids and friends will be really impressed, lol.

Bacon Weave Ingredients

Bacon- That’s it! Just make sure it’s thick cut. I have found thinner bacon to just break apart and not yield the perfect weave that I am looking for. Mt favorite is Beeler’s and Neuske’s if you’re able to get it where you’re at 🙂

How to Make a Bacon Weave

While prepping these bacon weaves may take a little more effort, they’re still really easy to make.

First, cut your thick cut bacon in half and preheat your oven to 375°F.

Weave your bacon together by going over and under into a bacon weave (full directions on the recipe car below).

Bake for 15-20 minutes (depending on how crispy you want your bacon). Once done to your likeness, let them cool for 5 minutes and you’ll have a beautifully crispy bacon weave ready to add to your meal! They’re that easy and so much fun.
