Bacon is a super versatile food
. It can be eaten by itself, used to add more life to another dish and even turned into a desert. In most cases, you will need to cook the bacon first (Beef Rouladen
is one exception). Just remember, as the old adage goes, never cook bacon without a shirt on!

- Pan to cook dis shit in
- Plate w/ paper towel on it
- Put pan on stove top and put it at about medium
- Put bacon in when it's hot (a way to tell when it's ready is to drop water on the pan. If it just sits there, it's too cold. If it kissing dissapears instantly, it's too hot. If it sizzles, it's ready.)
- Make sure bacon isn't touching when you put them in the pan, just lay them in lines
- When the sides start curling up a lot, check underneath. Depending on how crispy you want it, you should flip them anywhere between a healthy looking pink/brown and a heavy caramelized brown color. Burnt is not your friend (unless you like bacon burned a little like I do ;])
- When it looks mostly done take them out and lay them on a plate with a paper towel on it to help wick away grease, they will continue to cook a little after you take them off.
- I know this will be hard, but wait a minute or two before digging in. If making for another dish (Like, say, Stuffed Hamburgers) then wait for it to cool enough to handle and then use it when the recipe says to.
You will need
- A microwave safe plate in good condition, no cracks or chips!
- Three paper towels
- Lay two of the paper towels onto the plate.
- Spread the bacon over the paper towels in a single layer with none of them overlapping.
- Lay the third paper towel over the top of the bacon.
- Put the bacon in the microwave
Cooking time will depend on three things, the power of your microwave, the amount of bacon you are cooking and how crispy you want your bacon.
Cooking 3 pieces of bacon to medium will take, on average, 2-3 minutes.
the plate with a potholder and CAREFULLY remove the top papertowel, beware of superheated steam
and the super hot plate!
Microwaved bacon is easier to make, cleaner to make and has less fat than fried bacon. The downside is that it's difficult to get it SUPER crispy if that's how you like it, however, bacon that comes in microwaveable bags can get as crispy as you want it, although it is quite expensive!
- THIS SHIT IS kissING GOOD
- Geandily says you can microwave bacon too, but apparently it makes plates explode soooooooooo
- Geandily actually says that he has microwaved bacon MANY times, the plate that exploded was old! You can also buy microwaveable bacon.
