How long have humans enjoyed bacon?

While you are coming up with an answer


Here's a TIP:
Not in a hurry for your bacon? Heat your oven to 350, and roast your strips of bacon on an aluminum foil-lined pan for about 12 to 15 minutes. You can put it on a rack if you like. For a special treat, put some maple syrup and fresh ground black pepper on the bacon strips before cooking.

Please do not google and spoil it for anyone else.

  • I'm guessing thousands of years, since smoking is one of the earliest ways people preserved meats.

  • If you want to say good morning to me you can just say it. No need to post a bacon question to get my attention...though you did. Good morning Dard

  • I am going to be so hated for this. I actually don't like bacon unless its turkey bacon.

  • No idea, but oven baking is the only way I cook bacon now. I do it a bit differently though - cold oven to start with, bacon goes in, oven gets turned to 400*, and I let it bake approximately 20 minutes.

  • I'd assume for as long as they've been eating domesticated pigs.

    AB great idea. There's just no point in remaining friends on Pinterest knowing there will never be a delicious surprise pin with bacon.
