Works For Me Wednesday - Fast and Easy Bacon

works for me wednesday

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.

Bacon must be on the brain. This is the second bacon tip of the day, oven bacon was the first. MMMM YUMMY Bacon. Nothing beats bacon. Hugs, Jen

If you have a lot of bacon to cook, you can lay it on a rack set into a baking sheet and just bake it! pouring a little H2O into the sheet keeps the grease from splattering.

I cook my bacon in the microwave also. But I never thought of using cooking spray to keep it from sticking to the paper towels.. I will try that next time I cook some.

I have to try that! I also have a guy who loves his bacon!
