This my favorite way to cook bacon--so fast and no mess! Also frees up the stove for making other parts of a meal (and one less pan to wash). I shorten the cook time to 3-4 minutes since I like my bacon soft and chewy.
it was good
such good bacon
I love bacon sooo much it is awesome.. However this recipe was kinda too cooked and crispy...
This worked so well for me. I used four thin slices and it took only four minutes. I love not having all that greasy taste from frying or baking. Thanks for a great tip. This is one of my favorite tips I've learned in a long time. I never would've thought I could get crispy bacon from the microwave. Awesome!
Worked great! I usually bake my bacon, but needed to have some for a recipe and didn't want to use up the dishes and didn't have the time, so used this. It worked well and bacon was crispy. My slightly thick bacon was done in 3 minutes. Thanks; I'll use this method again!
I think this way of cooking bacon in the microwave works a lot better than my bacon tray. The best part is that most of the bacon grease is in the towel for easier clean up. Thanks BecR. Bullwinkle
Yeah! a great way to microwave bacon! I have one of those funky bacon microwave things that is a real pain to clean. This is much nicer - lined a 7 by 11 pyrex dish with three papertowels, laid bacon down (only fit 5 slices at a time) and covered with two towels. Since I used regular old thin bacon not the thick slice I cooked for only 5 minutes and it was perfect, quite crisp. Then I wiped out dish with a paper towel and did again with fresh paper towels until the whole package was cooked. So I used a lot of paper towels but it was worth it in terms of easy clean up and the back was crisp and not greasy like pan fried. thanks! I am using this from now on.
Good, but made my microwave a greasy mess! I used a very thick-cut peppered bacon. Anyways, the amount of paper towels called for wasn't nearly enough... there was a pool of grease covering the bottom of my microwave by the time it was done cooking. Next time, I'll use a lot more towels! Otherwise, a nice method for quickly prepping bacon. I used the bacon I cooked in Bacon Cheddar Stuffed Burgers , which were great.
Thanks for posting! I hate cooking bacon in a skillet - but I also don't like flabby bacon. This takes care of it - it's a great option when you're cooking bacon to add to a recipe rather than just eat with breakfast.
