Intro: The End of Smelly Bacon
Needed for this are:
- An unopened package of bacon (not frozen)
- A knife for opening the bacon package
- Plastic sandwich bags
- A larger locking plastic bag
Step 1: Open the Package
Open the package of bacon and pull off as many strips as you usually eat in one serving. For me that is two slices.
Step 2: Bag the Bacon
Fold each serving portion and place each into a separate sandwich baggie. Fold the baggie around the bacon.
Step 3: Bag the Baggies
Place the sandwich baggies into a locking freezer bag, seal the lock, and place into a freezer.
When you want bacon, open the locking freezer bag. Remove a baggie. Remove the bacon from the baggie. Place a paper towel on a plate and place the serving of bacon onto the paper towel. Cook for two burst of 25 seconds in a microwave. Remove the plate from the microwave. Watch out for hot grease. Lay each piece of bacon flat on the towel. Wrap one piece in a couple of layers of the paper towel. Then wrap the other in the towel.
Place the plate back into the microwave and cook in bursts of 25 seconds on high until the bacon is done as crisply as you want it. Watch out for hot grease. Unwrap the cooked bacon and enjoy.
I have kept bacon in the freezer like this for a couple of months and it tasted absolutely fresh when cooked.
