Bacon Explosion with Irish Pork

Heart attack on a plate. Worth it. So we decided to make an Irish Pork Bacon Explosion last weekend. My friend Jonathan did all the work while I took photos.

Streaky bacon weaved together

Sausage meat plastered on top

Barbecue sauce put on that

Cooked bacon bits sprinkled on top

Rolled and then weaved

    The quote at the bottom of the Wikipedia page is the best – “the dish tasted better than expected, but I didn’t learn the true meaning of the bacon explosion until the next day”.

    Nice one, Jonathon & Damien.
    I’ve made a few of these on the smoker at home.
    I’ve found that the trick is to roll the sausage meat and filling up first, leaving the bacon weave flat.
    Then roll that ‘tube’ with the bacon weave.
    This will help seal the flavours and juices inside and make the whole thing easier to slice.

    Also you can fry up an onion with your bacon pieces filling for the ‘healthy’ version 🙂
