Whoever would have guessed that microwaving bacon would produce such great results?!!!
Wonderfully easy with little to clean up I can have bacon sandwiches even when I'm running late ( which is often!!).
Thanks Pat...for a fabulous eye opener!!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 slices bacon
  • salt and pepper (to taste optional)


  1. MICROWAVE - Put a layer of kitchen paper on a microwave proof plate and top with the bacon slices and place another layer of kitchen paper on top and cook in microwave on high for 2 to 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper if desired.
  2. FRYPAN - Place bacon in a cold frying pan and turn the heat on and cook until crisp (by placing in a cold pan ensures that the fat renders out while the pan is warming, therefore there is no need for oil). Season with salt and pepper if desired.
