DIRECTIONS

  • Note: I DO NOT recommend a paper plate due to danger of fire.
  • On a microwave-safe dish (such as a Corelle dinner plate/or 8 x 10-inch Pyrex glass baking dish), lay down 2 sheets (double layer) white paper towels. Place 6 thick slices bacon on the paper towels (not overlapping each other). Cover the bacon slices with 1 sheet of white paper towel.
  • Microwave on high for 5 to 6* minutes.
  • Rotate dish and microwave on high for about 5 to 6* minutes more (*note: microwave ovens vary, so cooking times may vary; time is for my microwave), or until done to your liking (I like mine crisp). Be careful not to burn the bacon.
  • Remove from microwave. Your bacon is ready!
  • NOTE: You can use regular slice bacon as well, just reduce cooking time by a minute or two.
