The Bacone! Plus: There's a BaconCamp?

Posted By on Tue, Apr 28, 2009 at 11:30 AM

I present to you the Bacon Explosion's rightful heir. the Bacone!

The Bacone is a cone made from (what else?) bacon and filled with scrambled eggs, cheese and sausage gravy and topped with a homemade biscuit. It's like an entire Old Country Buffet plate wrapped up into a cone!

The Bacone was entered into what is the greatest contest of all time, BaconCamp, a series of contests for bacon enthusiasts in different cities. (Neither Kansas City nor any other Midwest cities are currently lined up to hold BaconCamps. This needs to be rectified immediately.)

The Bacone was introduced at the San Francisco event and went on to blow away the judges.

Dare I say its premiere is the culinary equivalent of Stravinisky's "Rite of Spring." Here's what one judge had to say: "At first I was thinking this was going to be difficult to handle, hard

to eat, etc. But it wasn't. It was perfectly formed and super easy to

eat... I'll say what I said then that I believe now: McDonald's should be selling this thing."

Best of all, it is easy to make -- sort of. The one difficult part of the Bacone is the cone. But as these instructions explain, it's simply a matter of finding a strainer and some aluminum foil. After that, you just fill the cone with your choice of goodness.

*One

personal cooking note: The Bacone instructions show the bacon being fried.

If you don't have a fryer, fear not. A normal oven should work fine

(though a convection oven would be better), set at 400 to 425 degrees.

Also, remember to use high-quality bacon. Lower-quality

bacon contains more fat, which shrivels into nothingness and leaves

you with straggly pieces of warped bacon instead of the desired cone.
