Inside Out Burger

So I thought I'd call this an inside out burger. It's not entirely inside out, more just all rearranged. But it uses a lot of bacon, so that's pretty awesome.

Here you can see how to shape the bacon to make a cup shape. That's a jumbo muffin pan with particularly deep wells that I got from Michael's. I probably should have used more of a thinner bacon, and maybe cut it in half lengthwise to get a tighter weave. In fact, I seem to recall having a very similar problem with my previous effort at forming bacon into a cone shape. I wonder if I'll ever learn from my delicious mistakes. Into the cooked bacon cups I put in these really tiny burger patties. Maybe 2 or 3 ounces precooked weight. Two patties into each cup with a piece of cheese between them.

From there I took some Pillsbury crescent rolls and cut out a disc about the size of my bacon cup and put it on top to cap it off. Baked that til golden and top the whole thing off with some fresh tomato and lettuce. I managed a single bite of it in a hand held manner before I relented and used a knife and fork. Again, must remember to use more of a thinner bacon.
