I guess to differentiate between the person and the building.

I'm not that far from you, but we spell it diner down here in Picksburgh.

I don't like bacon very much, mostly because it's too salty. I know that is blasphemy on this board, but that's how it is. If I do eat it, I want it crispy. I do like a BLT, but it has other things on it that reduce the salty taste.

S'ok. I would pit their bacon against anyone's.

And I am willing to try both.

And if the other bacon is good I will try both a lot.

I did a bit of googling. Seems like the only place with that spelling is just around the Erie PA area. You live in a weird spot.

I like my bacon crispy. We had some sort of device for microwaving bacon but, like others have mentioned, the micro got all splattered with the grease. Then I found the joy of nuking between paper towels. Crisped the way we like it, no mess - perfect. However, if I need the drippings for something I have been known to fry it out.

That's OK Carol, it just leaves more for us bacon lovers. Now if you want to take away our bacon, THEN you'd be in trouble!

We make room for everyone on this forum! Well, maybe except people who don't like to cook, but what would they be doing here? I think we have very few food snobs. OTOH, most foods are available in low-salt versions these days.

I have tried reduced sodium bacon but it seemed just as salty to me. I guess I like it as long as I have something with it to offset the salty taste. I do, however, absolutely love eggs cooked in bacon grease.

Carolpa, I'm pretty sure the constitution guarantees us the right to bacon. And It must be downright unconstitutional to not like it...clearly unamerican. I believe if you hurry you can catch a flight out of the country before a mob forms. ;p.

I guess I could choke down a piece of bacon once in a while to avoid being deported.

Carol, try soaking the bacon, uncooked, in water for about 15 minutes, then pat dry with a paper towel and fry. See if that helps with the salt.
