Prepare 5 sheets of parchment paper, at least 3 inches longer than bacon strips.
On each sheet of parchment paper, lay 5 strips of bacon edge to edge to form a sheet of bacon.
On a separate sheet of parchment (or foil) press a portion of ground meat into a rectangle the width of your bacon sheet and about 4/5 as long. This should be about 1/4" thick.. Use parchment paper to loosely roll this ground meat layer for easy moving. Transfer to the bacon and lay as depicted in the image below.
