Clean the baby food jar very thoroughly and be sure to remove all adhesive from the label. Place the baby food jar upside down on the microwave safe dish.
Lay two pieces of bacon to make an "X" over the bottom of the baby food jar as shown. Use kitchen scissors to trim the ends.
Next, weave slices of bacon around the ends. Are you getting hungry yet??
Cover the entire thing with a wet paper towel, and place in the microwave for about 4 minutes and 30 seconds total, checking after every minute. Microwave times vary, and ours is DIEING a slow and painful death, so yours may cook up much faster.
Set aside and allow to cool. Carefully pull the bacon bowl from the baby food jar, and fill with salad or eggs.
Here are some ideas for bacon bowls:
Fill with lettuce, tomato, and ranch dressing. The lettuce and tomato make this a healthy snack.
Or fill with scrambled eggs for breakfast! Wouldn't this be a unique appetizer for a brunch?
Who says weaving has to be limited to traditional basket making supplies. Have some yummy fun with this culinary craft.
