Bacon and Fried Cheese Tacos.

Quick pic first.

Happy New Year! I’m currently in low carb mode, and my super cool photographer friend Lindsey sends me this link to a gal making taco shells out of cheese slices from the deli.

I was too lazy to leave the house today, so I tried with shredded cheese, and it worked.

Then I figured I’d have to Hungry Dudes it up, and what better way to do that than with bacon?

Want to know how to do it? It’s super easy. I don’t make things that are hard to make. It is super simple. I promise.

Spread 1/4 cup of shredded cheese on parchment paper or waxed paper. I used waxed and mexican.

Heat about 45-55 seconds, depending on your microwave wattage. You kind of need to overcook it, or it will be too soft.

Peel off the paper while it’s warm, and put something in the center so you can stuff it later.

Let cool, and you’re done! YAY!

You could probably do little bowls too if you wanted. Have at it. crispy cheese. WIN!

For the bacon:

I used the microwave again.

Lay about 6 paper towels on a plate, and line up 6 pieces of bacon; about 1/4” overlapping the edge of the next piece of bacon. I flipped the bacon so edges were alternating, but kept the meaty part to go over the fat part. It always seems that one edge seems a bit wider.

***note*** above pic? I tried to cut some down so you’d get that rounded edge. It didn’t work right, but it’s still ok. I’ll be using the one above to stuff with an egg in the morning. ;)

Cover with 2 paper towels, and heat at least 5 minutes. (My microwave normally takes about 2:30 for 2 pieces of bacon for reference. This took about 5:30 minutes.)

Then, the same as with the cheese. Lay out, and put something in the center to keep the mouth of your taco open.

(See? Edge kind of is too short to really stuff this taco.)

And repeat as needed.

and look, low carb tacos!

These were low sodium…and shrank like crazy. BUT…they worked. :)

90 calories for 1/4c of the cheese, so 90 cals per cheese taco shell, and..eh…240 for each bacon one.

Anyway, stuff with your favorite taco goodies, and eat!
