Because everything is better in a bacon cup!

This is a pick me up, quick and simple Smokin’ BLT Cup recipe that will brighten up everyone’s week!


  • 12 slices of The Smokin’ Butcher dry sweet cured smoked collar bacon – get it in-store!
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 2 tsp. lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp. chopped spring onions, plus more for garnish
  • Himalayan Pink Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups halved cherry tomatoes
  • 1 head of iceberg lettuce, chopped
  • 1 avocado, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Invert a muffin tin upside down onto a large rimmed baking sheet.
  2. 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.
  3. Repeat to make three more cups. Bake until crispy, about 20 minutes. Let cool for at least 15 minutes.
  4. Make dressing: In a medium bowl, whisk together Greek yogurt, lemon juice and spring onion and season with salt and pepper. Add tomatoes and lettuce and toss to coat.
  5. Remove bacon cups from muffin tin and fill with dressed lettuce and tomatoes. Garnish with more spring onions and serve.
  6. Serve with a nice glass of your favourite local American Pale Ale – and don’t forget to share your photos & tag us!
