Bacon

I love bacon. It is great in the morning with eggs, forms the base flavor on my quiche and many other dishes. It is great with a real tomato - you know, one that has vine ripped flavor- add lettuce add some Mayo and you have a wonderful sandwich.  So how do you cook bacon?

I start with a cold non stick frying pan.  I lay out the bacon flat and the turn on the heat to low.  I find that it takes a little longer, and I do have to turn it more.  However, cooking it slow on low heat helps the water to evaporate and eliminated the splatter factor. It also helps to develop the flavor. I end up with nice crisp bacon.

If I am cooking a lot say for some quiche or a large crowd,   I use the oven.  Baking the bacon also takes some time and you do have to watch it or it will burn.  Do not overlap the bacon if you want it crisp.

So How do you cook bacon?  Do you nuke it, fry or bake it? Let me know if you have any tips you want to share.
