I'm bored so.....BACON THREAD!!!!!!!!!
Here's a fun idea.

Bacon and Ice cream. Before you scoff, look at this........

And then Burger King is rolling out a bacon ice cream thingy.

Has anyone tried this?

Bacon ... somehow appropriate for this forum. Reminds me of this ...

Muslim woman's body found in hospital morgue covered with bacon

Quote:A £5,000 reward is being offered by police after the body of a Muslim woman was found in a hospital mortuary, covered with rashers of bacon.

The desecration was discovered when the family of the grandmother, aged 65, was waiting to see her body after she lost her fight with cancer.

Well, hell. No one cares about bacon. My thread has fizzled instead of sizzled. I was looking forward to lots of bacon bits and bacon wisdom.

How do you cook your bacon? Oven or frying pan?

So many cats, so few good recipes.

Mmmmm, bacon...

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

I bring home the bacon and fry it up in the pan, honey. But I'm looking for fun things to do with bacon. Now, I know this thread should be in the food section but bacon is in a category of it's own. Yes it is. That's why the ice cream and bacon was intriguing.

Voodoo Donuts, here in Portland has a bacon donut which is amazing.

I've never cooked bacon, what's the best way? I had it and enjoyed it for the first time this year. I liked it crispy.


People here are crazy for maple bacon things. Haven't tried the combo yet.

RE: I'm bored so.....BACON THREAD!!!!!!!!!
I recommend the oven method. It keeps the mess to a minimum, and allows for better control over crispness. That said, you will still have to make it a couple times to get a feel for what works for you. Here's the basics:

Preheat oven to 425F

Place a wire rack on a cookie sheet, and spread bacon in a single layer on top. Bake for seven minutes then flip, and return to oven for another five to seven minutes.

The key is to take the bacon out just before it's cooked to your preference. That's because the bacon is still cooking when you remove it, and it's so thin that the cooking is significant. That goes for in the pan as well, but to a lesser degree because in a pan you are likely removing it to a cold plate when you take it out. In the oven, it stays on the hot rack to finish cooking and to drip.

Can you recommend a bacon brand or what to buy? I look at the options at the store and get overwhelmed. I don't know the differences.
