Bacon Weave Breakfast Burger

Conventional wisdom is for bacon to go inside a burger. It’s a topping, usually, and it makes the burger taste more bacon-y, which is a good thing. But, our friend Nick from Dude Foods is a thinker. He flipped this idea on its head. Baconeers, behold the Bacon Weave Breakfast Burger. Now, bacon takes the place of the buns. You can finally cross this off your bucket list.


  • 1-2 packs thick cut bacon
  • 1 ground beef burger patty
  • A slice or two of your favorite cheese
  • 1 egg

  • Open your packages of bacon and make two weaves in the following fashion:


  • Cook them at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
  • After they have cooled, place an upside down bowl over each weave and use a knife to cut a circle to make the “buns.”


  • Grill up your burger (we recommend a 1/3 lb. patty). Place your slice of cheese on the burger right before it’s done cooking to let it melt slightly.
  • After that’s done, add a sunny side up egg to the patty.
  • Place everything within the two bacon weaves and you’ve got yourself a nice Bacon Weave Breakfast Burger. You should be proud. Now, please share with us.
