Bacon Explosion

Confession: I didn’t make this, my husband did. It was delicious. He did an awesome job.
Brian had been talking about this recipe for like a month before he finally made it. He started at 4 in the morning. The log of greasy goodness was done way before I woke up! He suggests serving it with scrambled eggs. I would also recommend pancakes and French toast, but mostly because I love them. 


  • 2lbs of your favorite, thick sliced bacon
  • 1 or 1.5 lbs of Italian sausage, mild or spicy, your choice
  • Seasoning of choice, we used Cavandars
  • BBQ Sauce
  • Sliced green pepper
  • cookie sheet covered in tinfoil


  1. Preheat oven to 350°
  2. Weave the bacon 5×5, this will serve as your outer layer. (Weave it like the potholders you made as a child, on the red loom)
  3. Cook and crumble remaining bacon
  4. Take weave of bacon, lay flat on cookie sheet/tinfoil. Flatten sausage over the weave. Spread BBQ sauce and season to your liking. 
  5. Lay pepper slices and bacon crumbles on top of sauce.
  6. Carefully roll the MEAT into a log, with the weave on the outside. Have the seam on the bottom.
  7. Coat the log with more BBQ and seasoning, to taste.
  8. Cook 2.5 or 3 hours, use a meat thermometer to test. You want the meat around 165°.
