How to cook bacon

Bacon is favorite in Cruft Manor. Typically, bacon is cooked in the microwave here. It is quite a production with separating the strips on a plate and careful placement.

I was listening to one of my favorite podcasts, Infected, and Martin, Joey, and the Gator were discussing how to cook bacon. Gator suggested that you cook bacon "like a man" and toss the slab in without separating anything.

Now Gator ain't a man to steer me wrong, so I gave it a try.

I tossed about a quater of the slab in the pan. The pan was nice and hot.

Sure enough, the bottom slice started to cook and it peeled off the slab quite easily. I simply moved the slab off with no trouble and the bacon continued to cook.

Quite rapidly, the bottom slices each began to cook and shrink down, peeling themselves off the slab. It was trivial to seperate them now.

The bacon cooked up just great. I cooked a second slab to test again with the same results.

Of course the final test was if the girls liked it. As you can see, they both rated Gator's bacon cooking method and superb.

So the next time to cook bacon, cook it "like a man" and just toss that slab in.

Hey Mike. I coincidentally ran into your post on Darknet doing research after Cory's comments at USC last night. Good read. Thank you so much for your input at the USC meeting. It made for a great discussion.

And yes, nuking bacon is a sin. But you get bonus points for being a Geocacher.

This IS indeed the proper technique although it should be done a whole pound at a time instead of the paltry 6 strips you have cooked here.
