Comment: There are numerous types of bacon sold in the markets including Thick Cut, Thin Cut, Smoked, Gourmet, Nitrate-Free, Canadian, Honey and Hickory flavored, etc., and we probably buy a different one each time. Bacon can be expensive so we look for the sales and use it not only for breakfast meals but also for BLT sandwiches, in some sauce recipes and on the top of our Meat Loaf (when the bacon is cooked the meat loaf is done).
Bacon is pork so it should be thoroughly cooked and how long it takes depends on the heat you are using but on average, 5 minutes
4 slices per person
Take a package of bacon and cut it in half and from one half, take 4 slices per person. Drop these into an 8”or 10” fry pan and cook over medium heat and cook until crispy. When cooked, lay the bacon out on a paper towel to absorb the grease before serving. Store the remaining raw bacon in a self-sealing plastic bag and refrigerate.
Note: An alternate way of cooking bacon is by using a cookie sheet pan, lined with parchment paper, lay the bacon in strips and back at 400 degrees until cooked. (Approx. 20 minutes).
