That's a really good idea--do you reheat it in the microwave? This could be something worth doing next time I'm in MN--my parents eat bacon on Sundays, this would be easier for them than cooking bacon every Sunday. Am I correct to assume the bacon is cooked in the oven (I missed Andy's post). Heck, it would be a good idea for me! I usually roll the bacon (raw) and freeze that, but sometimes it is difficult to break the rolls apart (a trick from a Tupperware party attended a gazillion years ago).

Alix--I tried putting bacon bits in the freezer...that didn't work...I discovered I was rather fond of frozen bacon bits (I put bacon on a cookie sheet cover with a paper towel and roll with a rolling pin to make the bits...). Maybe pre-cooked frozen bacon wouldn't be such a great idea for me to do...

I usually cook two pounds at a time. A pound fits in a half sheet pan very nicely.

They've had the precooked bacon strips in stores for awhile, I got a package once and found it was way too convenient.

My favorite sandwich is fried bacon and butter.

Darn you Andy! Look at what you've started! You're going to make a whole bunch of people with low impulse control very fat!

Now that is so wrong, but it makes so much sense!

Yes, CW, you just nuke it a little to warm it up.

No bacon in France?! Now that's an interesting piece of trivia.

We always pre cook bacon before we go camping. We just reheat it on the griddle or in a fry pan while the eggs or pancakes are cooking. CWS, I think this would be a great way for your parents to get their Sunday bacon and I am sure it could just be zapped in the microwave for a few seconds to warm.

Weird isn't it? Our poor little student was horrified at the stuff we call "cheese" here. Cheddar, no matter how good, is just NOT cheese to her. She was just as thrilled to discover what real beef tastes like, and bacon...oh bacon was her new favorite food.

They eat very differently there. Every meal is a production, and it sort of took her by surprise that we don't do that here.

But do they use the grease to cook their eggs?
