How to line muffin cups with bacon

Using regular cut bacon, not thick cut will be much easier to work with.  The thick cut will take up too much of the muffin cup.

To line the cups with bacon simply cut the bacon in half and place one piece in the muffin cup and then overlap the other piece slightly to fill the entire surface.

If you don’t cut the bacon in half it gets too bulky and again will be harder to get your meat mixture into the cups.
