    Which kinda failed... I used shoulder ham which is highly fat free, so there actually wasn't much fat to be cooked out of it, and I think I cooked it for a bit too long as most of it became crisp and felt like I was eating crackling.

    I was hoping to achieve a bacon weave & egg roll, with the bacon weave acting as the roll.

    I used an electric fan forced oven, heated to 200C with the bacon in the oven from cold (not preheated in other words).

    Despite the stuff up, it was still enjoyable.

    I've seen people do this to make a "meatzza" base. Really keen to give it a go one day.

    The reason why it failed is because I wanted the fat to act a glue to hold all 10 pieces together. I attempted the 'bacon flip' but 3 of the outer pieces fell off so had re-assemble it.

    I need revise the recipe by getting another cut of bacon and maybe adjusting cooking timings.
