    Our beloved Brother Reformed Thomist graciously showed us the way to early cardiac arrest in his Bacon Cheese roll thread. Being on an eternal life wish, I had to make this thing. Here is a pictoral journey of my own creation of this ultimately sinful delicacy. Yes, the photos are my own, taken from my kitchen.

    Step one- Weave some bacon-


    Step two- Bake for about 15 minutes at 400 degrees-


    Step three-

    Take a generous helping of cheese...


    And cover the bacon weave with it-


    Roll up the pig blanket-


    Slice it up...


    And serve!


    Yes, it is incredibly good to eat. I expect to have a figure akin to a beach ball before next Tuesday.

    That is so disgusting. And probably ridiculously delicious.

    Looks great, but may be missing something in the middle.

    I'm thinking sausage :lol:

    No laughing smiley needed- I thought much the same. While rolling this concoction, I pondered scrambled egg, fried hash browns, sausage and even roast chilis and onions as filling additives. Only a desire to live to the age of 50 kept me from doing so.

    Those all sound great. And gave me another idea I could try on a smaller scale....bacon-wrapped homemade corn dogs. Yowza, my wife is going to be excited when I get to tell her what's for Saturday morning breakfast!

    I would suggest sleeping in and making it a brunch.

    Well, that's really what it is. We call it breakfast to trick ourselves into believing we got up early enough to call it that.

    This is the first Saturday morning in 6 months that I don't have to work my side job, so we're going to make most of it. And this will certainly help.

    Who needs a cardiologist?

    This world is not my home I'm just passing through
    my treasures are laid up somewhere beyond the blue
    the angels beckon me from Heaven's open door
    and I can't feel at home in this world anymore . . .

    Or, as Oliver said so eloquently . . .

    "Please sir, I want some more."

    If the bacon was hot enough to melt the cheese then it must have been pretty warm to the touch... what did you use to ensure that when you were rolling it up that it rolled evenly?

    You should come out and visit our place... and bring a bacon cheese roll with you! ;)

    I just want everyone to know that Bill will be eating nothing but bok choy and lentils today for a detox.

    eww..bacon looks too raw....

    I think it could be rolled in a layer of biscuit and baked some more. ;)

    Best thread ever.

    How many Weight Watchers points is this? I by no means need WW but the gross-out factor of 20+ points is strangely appealing.

    I don't know abut WW, but it would fit perfectly into a low carb diet. :)

    This morning after I had my delicious bowl of whole grain cereal with fresh fruit, Bill came out into the kitchen, opened up the fridge and said to me, "Hey! There's more bacon roll in here if you want some!" :lol:

    I may have a little bite later. I had my workout today, so I think I can afford a little taste.

    True - this recipe would have been Atkins' dream. He was truly into stuff like that. :eek:

    I'm thinking about adding a few more steps to the recipe: Place a stick up inside the finished bacon roll, dip the sucker in thick batter, and then deep-fry it (a la a 'Pogo'). Have a pail of BBQ sauce on the side for dipping purposes.

    Oh, and call 9-1-1.

    "Oops! Must have been the Bacon Cheese Roll. Was it the thick battered deep-fry one slathered in BBQ?"

    "Someone call the 'Gnome and tell him he got another one."
