NATIONAL BACON DAY ? !
i almost missed it...although i say,
"EAT BACON EVERY DAY !"
BACON IN EVERY BITE
found at DO IT AND HOW
no need to preheat the oven. you will render more fat if you start cold. i use a convection oven at 390F degrees.
cover a large cookie sheet with extra strength aluminum foil for easy clean up.
lay out your bacon in 3 or 4 strips close together. now basket weave in the other 3 or four strips. just like you would for a pie.
i set my timer for 15 minutes. remove from oven. then i make a spout at one end of the tinfoil and pour off as much of the fat (into a small heatproof bowl) with out tipping all the bacon off the sheet pan.
flip the bacon weave over...CAREFULLY, it's HOT.
FOR SPICY CANDY BACON IN EVERY BITE...
OPTIONAL...sprinkle with brown sugar, chili powder, cumin and chipotle powder.
put back in the oven for ABOUT 10 minutes?...it depends on the thickness of your bacon. the bacon shown was center-cut and was not very thick. you might want to check it every 5 minutes....or you might want to flip it again.
if your bacon is not getting crisp enough...remove from greasy sheet pan and put on a rack and back in the oven until done to your liking.
if not using right away, they crisp up very well in the toaster oven. i used mine the next two mornings for some fabulous breakfast egg and cheese burgers.
NOTE...the four sliced (actually 8 slices) was a little large, but so much fun to eat.
i thought about using it for a plate
please check out this DO IT AND HOW.com. it's a fabulous "How-To" about so many things,
BUT there are so many great ways to manipulate and use the ever so versatile BACON...i WILL try them all. taco shells, mini muffin cups, bowls etc...and don't miss the TURTLE BURGERS!
GENIUS I SAY !...BRAVO
