The idea for these bacon boats was a result of needing more bacon in my life (well, who doesn't?) and a particular baking pan begging to be used. I bought this Wilton Delectovals pan for making my Cloud Bread Hot Dog Buns, and I haven't been able to use it for anything else. I think the pan is supposed to be used for making Twinkies – which aren't exactly low carb!

However, the shape is perfect for gently curling up the sides of half strips of bacon – making them a wonderful one- or two-bite platform for so many things!

How to Make Bacon Boats

For this recipe I use thick cut center cut bacon, and then flattened them out a little with a meat tenderizer to make them a bit wider.

Cut them in half, discarding any excess fatty parts (not because they won't taste good, but because they will shrink and curl too much). Place each piece in the delectovals pan.Bacon Boats - gently curled bacon pieces ready for loading up!

Place under a broiler preheated to high for 3-4 minutes until the base of the bacon is starting to crisp up. Remove from the broiler and let cool slightly, then drain on kitchen paper to remove excess grease.

If you want to fill them with scrambled eggs as shown in the main photo, 2-3 eggs is the right amount for 12 boats (6 slices of bacon). Scramble however you choose (add cheese, herbs, spice – whatever you like!), then spoon into the bacon boats. Garnish with chopped herbs such as flat leaf parsley.Bacon Boats - gently curled bacon pieces ready for loading up!
