Microwaving ANYTHING is abhorrent. Microwaving BACON is worse than abhorrent!

WHAT??!! Better to put your children in the microwave. Well, a household pet anyway.

Bacon is so gross! So I would never nuke it or hell cook it anyway!

Paper towel on bottom, paper towel on top. 5 min, done!
Nice and crispy
AND the paper towel soaks up a lot of the grease!

Correct! It was a rhetorical question. Nobody nukes bacon.

It tastes as good as any other method and takes less time. See below for other pointers that work for me.

I always burn it to a crisp in the microwave.
...Or on the stove...I'm not great at makin' bacon.

Disgraceful. The best bacon is not microwaved!

It's not too good-rubbery,tough. But, I'd eat it anyway because I LOVE bacon and cooking it in microwave doesn't 'ruin' it.
I always fry mine.

Vegetarian here, don't care how you cook it. Grew up eating non microwaved bacon though, with a coffee can of bacon grease on hand for flyover ing vegetables and such ;-).

It's healthier to either microwave or bake bacon.

Microwaving anything is unacceptable, IMO.

Baking it is best. Put it on a rack on a cookie sheet. 20 minutes on each side at 375.

You probably won't get it crisp but I'm not a fan of crisp food in general.

I especially don't like bacon crisp, but I'm curious to know if it causes splatters all over the microwave's walls. I've never tried. it.

On the other hand, I LOVE the smell of bacon cooking & I don't want to miss - or confine - that.

Susanr, I sandwich it between paper towels and check it at 15-20 sec intervals. It cooks fast. Short pieces, a couple of layers max with paper towels between. Works great.

Oh, cool, the paper towel trick. Thanks! I try not to use paper towels (I've had one roll going for over 2 years now, but there are times when that would be handy.

If not paper towels, I do squirrel away extra napkins that come in a fast food bag, etc. and make sure those don't go to waste. I know, you don't do fast food either probably. There are microwave bacon cooker trays with ridges that collect the grease

(continued) so covering the bacon on that you could get away with 1-2 paper towels. I use a paper plate beneath so I can toss the whole greasy mess easily.

LOL I know, you don't use paper plates either. ;-)

{laughing} You're almost right on almost all counts. I actually have a stack of paper plates - I got them & the 1 roll of paper towels (to use instead of paper napkins, because, hey, at least I might actually use them sometime for icky messes) the

I moved into my apartment, for serving pizza to my wonderful moving crew. Geez, I think I even bought plastic cups for the beer, or maybe we just drank out of bottles. I still have the paper plates 2 years later. And I do avoid fast food except the

occasional lunch with the kids at Qdoba. And we eat that there, so no leftover napkins. But it's a good reason to keep them, should I ever end up with some. I'm not averse to using plastic, though. Or a microwave. Again, thanks.

Susanr - hugs! ('scuse the bacon breath...)
