  • best way to to cook bacon, you know those double roasting type pans, you just lay the bacon out on the top part and stick it in the oven that way all the fat drains in the pan below and it's crispy and good and not mess, it don't take long for it to cook either.

  • cookie sheet, 450, about 8-10 minutes, depending how much you do. Barring that, stop frying it topless.

  • NEXT time, stick it in a 400 degree oven on a cookie sheet lined with foil. Keep an eye on it so it doesn't get burnt, but you can a) cook more at one time, b) you don't get splattered on and c) it all stays flat and keeps its shape! Win, win and WIN!

  • I see the cooks on TV doing the oven method, but doesn't the grease pop all over the oven?

    I have a round screen thingie that I put over my skillet, it lets moisture out but traps the grease from the bacon. I've also put some paper towels on a microwave safe plate, put bacon slices on the towels, cover with a few more paper towels, and microwave. Only thing it, it isn't very environmentally reasonable- all of those paper towels.

  • make sure the pan is really hot before putting on, put a few drops of water and if that sizzles then it is hot!.. then cook on med turning every min or so. I cook the full pound I don't lay them straight I just throw them in the pan, and it always comes on nice a crispy not burnt. anyways just turn, turn, turn.. good bacon should take about 15 mins to heat say close and turn!!> Hope this helps.
