My love of food is pretty well documented on this blog, but when I won a ham at the holiday party at work, I knew I wanted to do something special with it. As such, I stumbled upon a mythic addition to any protein: The Bacon Weave!
I had seen it online first, done with a turkey, and then again with a mighty Turducken, but never with a ham. Perhaps, just perhaps, I could be the first! Besides, what could make a tasty, delicious ham more yummy than more pig!?

I was a bit worried about burning the bacon before the ham was done, but my fears were utterly unfounded. The bacon came out crispy and browned, dripping their goodness down into the ham deliciously. Even better, I used a center-cut, maple-flavored bacon, which added sweetness and richness to the ham.
And now...the finished product:
