Yeah I would go with the highest setting. As for how long, that would depend on how well done you like it. I would check it every once in a while as that will be your best indication. Other than that, no special instruction. Just place the bacon on the grill and let it cook, then enjoy

Bacon is great on the George Foreman. It stays pretty and flat, and all the grease drips off.

I've not had luck using the GF to cook bacon. Maybe I check it too often, I don't know. It just didn't seem to cook well. It certainly did not cook the top when closed.

Never even thought of doing bacon on "George"

I cooked the bacon on the george foreman grill - it turned out "beautiful" and tasted great! Better yet, cleanup was a breeze and the bacon smell did not go through the whole house! I love the smell of bacon, but not for days! Anyways, I highly reccommend it - Cooking time varied, I started checking it every 3 minutes, but by the end of "my experiment" I found that 8-14 minutes did it for 6-8 slices - not too soft or not too crispy. I suppose less time for more rare and more time for more crunchy.

I just like the idea of not having bacon fat allover the stove.
