Bacon Prep Tips

Preparing

OVEN

Place bacon in a large shallow baking pan lined with foil. Bake at 400°F to desired crispness (no turning necessary). Pat with paper towels to soak up grease.

SKILLET

Place bacon in an unheated skillet. Cook on medium heat to your desired crispness, turning frequently. Pat with paper towels to soak up grease.

Pro Tips

  • If bacon slices are too long to fit in your skillet, cut the bacon in half before cooking. 
  • When making crumbles, rather than cooking whole slices of bacon, chop raw bacon then cook until crisp, stirring occasionally. 
  • To decrease curling, shrinking and burning, cook on lower heat.
  • To reduce splattering, use a wire-mesh splatter screen over the skillet. 
  • To keep bacon slices straight and reduce shrinkage, weigh them down with an iron bacon press during cooking. 

BACON

Place on microwavable paper towels on a microwavable plate and cover with an additional paper towel. Microwave on HIGH to a desired crispness.

STORAGE

Once the package is open, tightly wrap or put unused bacon in an airtight container for up to 7 days.

Pro Tips

  • To freeze unopened bacon, overwrap the store package with heavy-duty foil (or other freezer wrapping), and ensure the package is tightly closed. Use within 1 month.
  • To thaw frozen bacon, let sit in the refrigerator. Do not defrost in the microwave or cook frozen.
  • To store cooked bacon, place in a plastic bag in your refrigerator up to 5 days.
