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.Posted by michael at September 18, 2006 09:55 PM
