Big bacon breakfast bowl

My entry is a bowl made of bacon filled with mini cheddar basil onion frittata, buttered brown sugar pancakes & fresh fruit

how I made it

Begin with a bacon weave (which I did wrong but it still stayed together), drape over a metal bowl covered in foil with the ends flipped up to catch the fat forming sort of a bacon grease moat. Place on the egg over direct heat so the bacon forms itself into the shape of the bowl as it cooks. I had to remove this 3 times to drain the fat off; there was so much in there I thought that if the levy failed I’da had the equivalent of a small tactical nuclear explosion inside the egg:

the whole assembly is supported on a veggie cooker and a small pizza screen is added on top with some weight to make sure the thing stayed together up top:

This is about ½ done, after another 20 minutes or so I removed it to let it cool so I could remove the bacon bowl from the metal bowl for use:

Next, caramelize onions then add beaten eggs with fresh shredded basil and top with cheddar cheese:

After batch one firmed up enough to remove I put them on the grid to finish cooking while the second batch went into the pan - had to keep the conveyor belt moving along efficiently

Next, using the same pan, add butter & brown sugar to the cups then pour in the pancake batter. After about a minute flip to brown the other side:

When all the cooking is complete, cut cantaloupe in half, scoop out the seeds add black berries:

Finally, assemble the big bacon breakfast bowl for presentation:

Then place it on the table & step away slowly because it took 3 hours to assemble this atrocity & there were a lot of hungry & less than happy foot tappers
