How to cook bacon?

I have a microwave, a small toaster oven, a rice cooker, an induction burner with a large, flat-bottomed wok, and no oven or stove. Also, no paper towels, however I did recently find aluminum foil. How can I cook bacon?

I'd put the bacon on the bottom of your wok and cook it over medium heat. Don't flip the bacon until it shrinks a little and the edges start to look crispy. If you don't have paper towels, I would use a fork or tongs and lift the bacon out of the pan and gently shake off some of the drippings. Your bacon will probably be a little greasy without paper towels but it will still be OK.

If necessary, cut the bacon strips in half to fit the toaster oven tray. Lay the half strips across the rack in the tray and bake at 400 F. until done.

You can drain them on a paper grocery bag (if they exist).

If you don't have paper towels, brown paper bags are GREAT for draining fried anything.

Cooking bacon in the microwave is the least messy way, but frying it up in a pan smells so good, and gives you great bacon fat for frying other things.

I always start the bacon in a cold pan. The mess isn't too bad, especially if you have one of those lids that let the air in but prevent spatter.

There are no paper bags in China. You even have to pay 30 cents for every plastic bag, at any store in the country.

You could use newspaper to drain it on. I'd vote for baking it in the toaster oven or using your wok to fry it.

It is not the end of the world if you can't drain it on paper towels or paper bag. It will just be a little more greasy.
