Bacon Chips – Turning Bacon Into Bacon

So I had this idea to puree bacon and spread it out on a silpat, then bake it to see what happens!!!

For this I used 4 strips of bacon, and 1/2 egg white

Puree the bacon and egg white together in a food processor until it’s as smooth as you can get it.

Spread it out over a silicon baking sheet as thin and smooth as you can get it.  I tried shaping this before baking, but this mixture shrinks quite a bit, so it is better to spread it out and see what fun shapes you can get.

Bake this in a 400F oven for about 10 minutes or until it is nice and golden brown.  Remove from tray and place directly on some paper towel to absorb the excess bacon fat.

Congratulations!!!  You just made bacon into something that still kind of looks like bacon.  It does have a cool texture and maybe if you use enough to fill a whole pan, you might get even cooler and bigger pieces.  This would be great on a BLT or as a sneaky salad garnish.

BACON!!!!

    I’m not sure how I feel about the sight of pureed bacon (oh the blasphemy!). I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.
    But…the outcome doesn’t look too bad.
