Bacon smell in the house can really make me gag. Worse yet, going out somewhere, let’s say church, and having the person’s coat in front of you reek of a freshly fried pound of bacon is worse than the Tilt A Whirl.
Well, I refuse the fry pan method:
And I’ve tried the microwave method:
But, now I’m a firm believer in the baking method:
Lay some parchment paper (or foil) on a cookie sheet. You can even lay the bacon on a rack if you prefer. Lay out your strips of bacon, not letting them touch each other. Bake in a preheated 400° oven for 12-15 minutes. No spatter, no mess, no lingering reek of bacon. Pieces come out perfectly straight and crispy! Let the pan cool a bit, swab grease with a paper towel and throw the paper away.
Speaking of Bacon..watch this! I especially like it when he dances past the windows that look like bacon, and eerily enough his hair looks like mine!
