I know that this probably isn’t the best time of the year to be talking about bacon. It doesn’t exactly fit into most people’s new year resolutions! But, I have a husband who cannot live without bacon. He dreams about bacon. He asks me to cook him bacon at the most unusual times. (And he doesn’t like the pre-cooked variety…we’ve tried that).
Instead of getting out the frying pan and splattering grease all over my stovetop, I’ve learned a fast and easy way to cook fresh bacon.
Take a microwave plate and put a paper towel on it. Spray quickly with non-stick cooking spray (Pam). Lay down a few pieces of bacon. Put another paper towel on top. Cook on HIGH in the microwave for 2-3 minutes. Voila! Fresh, crisp bacon with NO MESS. Simply throw away the greasy paper towels. No grease to drain, no splatter to clean up, to frying pan to wash.
The best part? A very happy husband.
