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

II used the microwave method - and please tell me exactly why did I not try this sooner??? WOW was this easy. And no mess! Had thick sliced bacon so I cut it in half to cook a little faster and it was done perfectly in 5 minutes. Probably the only way I will cook bacon into the future. THANKS for posting, Pat :)

The timing was perfect. I always am guessing about how long I should microwave bacon.

I needed a quick recipe to cook some bacon for a recipe. I used the microwave method so that I wouldn't heat up the house. I increased the bacon to six slices and increased the time to 5 minutes. This method worked like a charm. Thanks.

I love bacon! I used the frying pan method, because I wanted the bacon grease to use in another recipe later on. Mine turned out wonderfully crisp and delicious. Thanks for sharing!

I chose this recipe to tag, as DH and I have just re-modeled our kitchen and installed a new microwave which is different then last one. I made this as written, using 2 pieces of bacon and microwaving on high for 2 minutes and it turned out perfect. Thanks for sharing the cooking tip/technique. Made for Holiday Tag Game.

I also used the microwave method for this recipe.
I used short cut rindless bacon and this was just so quick and easy....not too mention fantastic results!
I did have to cook my bacon just a fraction longer..........but then what is 40 seconds between friends... ;-)
Such a great recipe, when you need bacon in a hurry. Not too mention saving time and the mess in not having to fry and clean the pan!
Thanks Pat for a quick and easy solution to bacon in a hurry!

I used the microwave method. I had to cook it for a little longer because my bacon was thick cut, and already flavored with pepper. It's so nice to have bacon that isn't all shriveled up! Thanks for posting.
