Bacon Weave Quesadilla Recipe
This quesadilla that uses bacon "tortillas" is perfect if you're following a low carb or keto diet!
Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time25 mins
- 32 slices bacon
- Your choice of filling I went with a 3 cheese blend, chicken, diced green peppers, diced tomatoes and salsa for dipping purposes.
Line 8 slices of bacon vertically side by side.
Fold back every other bacon strip and lay a slice of bacon perpendicular to the original 8 strips. Repeat this step until your entire bacon weave is done, alternating which strips go over and which strips go under the original 8 bacon strips. If this sounds confusing at all just watch the video.
Bake the bacon weave in your oven for 15 minutes at 350°.
Remove the bacon weave from the oven, pat down with paper towels to remove excess grease, place an upside down bowl over the bacon weave and trace around the bowl with a knife so you’re left with a circular bacon weave.
Repeat steps 1 - 4 again so you have a second circular bacon weave. Or, just put both bacon weaves into the oven at the same time.
Lay one of your circular bacon weaves down in a pan or on a skillet over medium heat, top with your choice of quesadilla filling and add the second circular bacon weave.
Cook for 3 minutes per side or until your cheese is melted and your bacon reaches your desired level of doneness.
