"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400. Flip a muffin tin upside down onto a large baking sheet. Cut 8 slices of bacon in half crosswise. Lay two of the halved strips onto an inverted muffin tin cup in the shape of a cross. Weave two more half pieces on both sides to create a mini weave. Wrap the entire cup with a whole slice of bacon. Repeat to make three more cups. Bake until crispy, about 20 minutes. Let cool for at least 15 minutes. Make dressing. In a medium bowl, whisk together Greek yogurt, lemon juice and chives and season with salt and pepper. Add tomatoes and lettuce and toss to coat. Remove bacon cups from muffin tin and fill with dressed lettuce and tomatoes.

Personal Notes:
I love retirement, it gives me more time to think of new ways for Gigi to eat bacon. This dish makes clean-up a little messy but it's fun to make and even more fun to eat. If you want to, substitute mayo or your favorite salad dressing for the dressing in the recipe. Just stir in the tomatoes, chives and lettuce.
