Bacon Lasagna

Yield: 6 servings


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 16 oz. ground sausage
  • Spices
    • 1/4 tsp thyme
    • 1/4 tsp basil
    • 1/4 tsp rosemary
    • 1/4 tsp tarragon
    • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • 12 oz. tomato sauce
  • 2.5 lbs. thick-cut bacon
  • 6-8 lasagna sheets
  • 1 jar (15 oz.) alfredo sauce
  • 7 oz. mozzarella, shredded


Next time I'll overlap the bacon more on the bottom of the pan so that it doesn't divide apart.  I also might try poking a few bamboo skewers vertically through the pan to both let the juices drip out while cooking and hold the bacon & lasagna together better.

Maybe also lay a couple strips of bacon across the bottom and weave it together with the sides to give more strength.

  1. Warm the olive oil in a skillet.  Add the onion and fry until translucent.
  2. Add the ground sausage, and cook until browned.  Drain off the excess fat.
  3. Add the spices and stir together.  Add the tomato sauce.  Mix together, reduce the heat, and simmer until thickened.
  4. Grease a disposable bread pan, and line with parchment paper.  Drape bacon over the sides, letting the excess hang over the edge.
  5. Place a lasagna sheet into the bottom of the bacon.
  6. Cover in a thin layer of alfredo sauce.
  7. Sprinkle with grated mozzarella sauce.
  8. Top with meat sauce.
  9. Repeat steps 5-8 until the pan is full.
  10. Fold the back back from the edges and over the top.
  11. If making ahead, cover and refrigerate.
  12. Bake at 350°F for 60 minutes.
    • It may drip grease while baking, so put a pan below it to catch the drips.
    • You'll need to drain the fat from the pan a couple times.  Remove it from the oven, tip a corner into a can, and collect the rendered fat.
  13. Broil for 2-5 minutes until the bacon is appropriately browned.
  14.  Let the pan stand on a wire rack to cool for 10 minutes.  Flip the lasagna out of the pan and onto a cast iron skillet, upside-down.  Return to the oven and broil for 2-4 minutes to brown the "bottom" bacon.
  15. Let stand for 10 minutes to set.
  16. Cut slices and serve hot.
