  • I cook the entire package and store the cooked bacon in a paper towel lined container in the frig. When I want bacon - it reheats in about 15 seconds in the microwave.

  • Honestly - bacon will last far beyond the expiration date. My cousin was sent to one of those survival camps in Wyoming - they carried their own bacon in their backpacks, at room temperature or higher, for a month. Never got sick. The salt content in bacon keeps it "safe" far longer than people think.

  • just make sure it doesnt have a funny smell to it. And it will start loosing it's pink color and start browning when it's bad.
