Directions Step-By-Step

1
Bacon Weave
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Foil line 2 large cookie sheets and add 2 metal cooling racks to the cookie sheets.
Use zip lock bag and add box of dark brown sugar, set aside.
2
Take 3 slices of bacon and cut in half, you now have 6 small sections of bacon to work with. Put the small bacon sections in the brown sugar bag and coat bacon very well.
3
Take the 3 slices of bacon and run them horizontal on the metal cooling racks, then take 3 more slices of sugar coated bacon and weave vertically with the horizontal strips. You are basically building a woven bacon blanket. This may sound complicated but after you complete the first the rest are a breeze. Continue with bacon repeating the same steps until you have 6 bacon weaves. Sprinkle each bacon weave with red pepper flakes before baking.
4
Bake in oven for 30 minutes or until bacon is done.
While bacon is baking move on to pimento cheese recipe.
Note for time saving: Make bacon weave and pimento cheese the day before and store in refrigerator.
Warm bacon in microwave before serving on burgers.

In large mixing bowl add mayo, cream cheese, pimentos and spices. With electric hand mixer blend together until smooth.
Add the shredded cheeses to the mayo mixture and mix well. Refrigerate until ready to put on burgers.

Pirate's Pride Burgers

In large mixing bowl combine the 3 pounds of ground beef, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper.
Form 6 burgers into large 7 oz burger patties.
8
Place burgers on grill. Cook on one side 10 to 12 minutes, before turning baste with melted butter. Turn burgers and cook until medium to medium well or at least 160F internal temperature.
