With a name like that it has to be good.  And yes it was.  But the best part is that it is easy to make.  

All I needed was 11 slices of "the best bacon ever" and 3/4 lb. of hot Italian sausage.  Of course you don"t have to use hot Italian, try your favorite sausage. Whatever flavor you feel would go with bacon.  Well, OK, your right, what doesn't go with bacon? 

Let's get started by braiding the bacon. into a basket weave. Lay 6 slices down like this;

Next fold back every other slice like this;

And now start the weave by placing a slice like below and folding the 3 slices back;

Now fold back the other three slices back and add the second vertical slice as below and then place the three slices back to continue the weave. 

When you are complete doing the basket weave you will have something that looks like the picture above.  

Now form 12 ounces of Hot Italian Sausage and form it into a uniform log the is the length of your bacon weave.  So now you should have something that looks like this.

And now let's roll the bacon around the sausage so it looks like;

Place this on a wire rack and place this on a cookie sheet in a 375 degree oven uncovered for approximately 45 - 50 minutes.  Ovens vary but please be sure to use a thermometer to make sure the middle internal temperature reaches 160 degrees.  

Pull from oven and let cool on counter top for 5 -10 minutes.  Slice approximately 1/4 inch and make you slider using your favorite condiments.  But, to be honest with you, no special sauce is needed.
