Bacon Hacks

It has been a while since I have posted anything about my favorite blog topic. After reading 8 Essential Bacon Hacks from LifeHacker I just couldn't resist. Here are a few of their hacks:
  • Ditch the Skillet; Fire Up Your Oven to Cook Perfect Bacon :: Grab a cookie or jelly roll tray, line it with foil, place the bacon on the foil, and then cook in your oven for 20-25 minutes at 375F.
  • A Strip of Bacon Saves Meatloaf from Sticking to the Pan :: The fat from one slice of bacon creates enough lubricant to prevent sticky or burned meatloaf.
  • Make Better, Less Messy Bacon in a Waffle Iron :: Cooking show host Alton Brown recommends this method as waffle irons make it easy to control the bacon by pulling away the grease from the cooking surface.
Check out the rest of their hacks here. My hack is buying only center cut bacon that has much less fat. Please let me know if you have any bacon hacks of your own!


  1. Cooking bacon in the oven is a great tip. It helps sell the stoneware bar pan by the Pampered Chef. While it's cooking, it helps season the stone.
