Caesar Salad Bacon Cups Recipe

Bacon…who doesn’t love bacon? Bacon makes everything better. While looking for salad ideas, I decided to create the ultimate caesar salad recipe. That is how I came up with the idea of Caesar Salad Bacon Cups recipe. Did you know the Caesar Salad was invented in Tijuana, Mexico? It was reportedly invented by a man named Caesar Cardini in 1924.

While this might not be the healthiest salad because of the obvious…bacon, but it will be the best one you ever had. Make them for your Memorial Day get together, 4th of July party or any backyard BBQ and they are sure to be the hit of the party. They make a great appetizer or side dish.

How to Make an Easy Cesar Salad Recipe

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. Using a standard cupcake pan, turn upside down and cover the back side of it with foil.

3. Cut 6 pieces of bacon in half and layer 2 pieces in an X shape over each tin.

4. Take a whole piece of bacon and wrap around each tin. You can weave it under and over the other pieces. Make sure the two ends meet and overlap under one of the half pieces that is hanging down over the side of the tin.

5. Bake for about 15-18 minutes, or until bacon is cooked through.

6. Remove from oven and let rest for about 15 minutes so the bacon hardens and won’t collapse when you remove it off the pan.
