The Bacon Wave

It's an old commercial for an old product. Just love the amount of grease they pour off. The cooked bacon in the commercial is cooked to an almost burnt crisp. To chew that I would have to get out my biting off and spitting nails dentures. But my question is how do you like your bacon? Burnt to a crisp, just this side of being burnt or almost raw? I like mine just this side of being burnt. I want to be able to recognize it as being bacon. Not shoe leather.

I like it thin and crisp for a sandwich or burger.

Thick and slightly flexible for breakfast or in a pot of beans.

The one way I still need to try it is as a roast. I have seen a couple of recipes for a slab of bacon topped with brown sugar and various other things then roasted or grilled and sliced after roasting. Sounds interesting to me!

Bacon is wonderful stuff!

I love that roasting idea. I think my deli at my grocery store has bacon by the rasher. You would have to place it on a rack though. To drain the grease as it is roasting.

I like my bacon cooked barely limp, unless I am crumbling it for something.

I have something similar to that but not as big. It makes a huge mess in the microwave. I should get rid of it. Now I make bacon in the oven. I like it crispy but not burned.

I like bacon most any way it is prepared. I reckon my favorite way is barely limp. Mrs Hoot calls it "jiggily".

I like mine crispy and chewy. It has to be able to crumble but still have chew.

The Bel-Loc diner has the best bacon, ever.

I respectfully disagree with that statement
