It's fast and easy. Have more control over the cooking. Can you deny the intoxicating aroma? I think not!


To make this recipe, all you need is BACON (and love, of course!) Choose thick sliced, regular sliced, smoked, unsmoked, cured, or uncured.

Step one

Place the bacon slices in a cold skillet. Make sure the strips aren’t overlapping too much.

Step two

Turn the heat to medium. Cook the bacon until the bottom is browned and crisp to your liking, about 4-6 minutes.

Step three

Transfer the crispy strips of bacon to a paper towel-lined plate to drain the excess grease.
