Lisa: The Greatest of All Gifts

Past protests to the contrary, I love bacon--extra-crispy bacon fried in a pan. Don't even think about using the microwave. No jiggly, glistening fatty bits should be visible. If it even looks too much like actual meat it is no good. But bacon cooked the way I like it...there's almost nothing better.

That said, I think joining the Bacon of the Month Club would be taking that love a bit too far.

Lisa- Have You tried cooking the bacon in the oven? It takes a little bit longer to cook it but it is tastsey.

I haven't tried that...but now I'll have to! Do you broil it?

I guess you could broil it. I have never tried due to the fact that my stove sucks and the broiler is broken. I just bake it at 400 degrees(you may want to try 350 since like i said before my stove sucks) and depending on how you like your bacon cooked is how long it takes. I just line a bakingsheet with parchement(for easy cleanup) and pop it in while I cook the rest of my meal. I thought also occured to me to try putting a rack underneatht he bacon so its not sitting in grease while baking. I will have to try it and let you know if it works.
