Roast your Bacon

Try putting your bacon in the oven.

Looks like restaurant-perfect bacon. Limited mess and hands-on time, too.

A Win-Win all around!


It's also a convenient way to have bacon on hand in a form that is rapidly integrated into a lettuce wrap, salad or one of my weekend favourites - a bacon cheese mustard and avocado sandwich. Just place in the oven for 15 minutes (+/-3min for desired crispiness) at 350 degrees.   Remember you can make extra and freeze it as well. I kept 3 of the above in a zip lock and fridge and eat them as a snack when needed.  It'll keep for 6 months in the freezer as well.

Lastly, clean up is a breeze.  No scrubbing pans and wiping grease off the walls and counter.  Just let the cookie tray sit at an angle and the residual bacon fat will pool off in the corner which you then can collect for future frying of your vegetables.  Throw away the foil and your doing no dishes what so ever.  


The picture above is the bacon Cioffi's makes for me.
