Make a Bacon Basket for Easter!


by 365daysofbacon


The Bacon Easter Basket. It’s more than a gift basket; it’s brunch AND dessert.

Just don’t forget to hard-boil the eggs.

Ok. Here are your Easter basket options:

  • Plast-icky basket, plast-icky eggs, plast-icky jelly beans, green plast-icky “grass,” plast-icky chocolate eggs



It’s not really much of a choice. Walmart — I hope your Easter sales drop drastically.

Oh, snap!

(Which, fittingly, is the exact sound a plastic basket makes when you “accidentally” stomp on it. Oops! Guess now you’ll hafta make a bacon basket.)

Hoppy Easter!




  1. Make the Bacon Chocolate “Rees-ter” Eggs, if you wanna. Set aside.
  2. Hard-boil some eggs, set aside.
  3. Pre-heat oven to 400.
  4. On a piece of wax/parchment paper, make a bacon weave.
  5. Place a small glass bowl upside down inside a larger baking pan or tray that has edges.
  6. Carefully flip your bacon weave onto the glass bowl.
  7. Bake for 30-40 minutes, till starts to brown.
  8. Broil an additional 1-3 minutes for dark brown, watching carefully so as not to burn.
  9. Place bacon weave (uncovered pans and all) in fridge to cool. (Just don’t set the hot pans on plastic shelf — use a wire rack to elevate, if necessary. It can stay here till cooled, overnight, or longer)
  10. Carefully peel the bacon-weave basket off of the glass bowl.
  11. Fill bacon basket with shredded greens, eggs, Bacon Chocolate “Rees-ter” Eggs, etc.
