Normally, SLOW fried in a skillet- BUT- ever had "Irish Chicken" ?

Put bacon in a jar with hot water. Shake for about 30 seconds. Dredge bacon slices in flour, Place strips on rack in oven, bake at 400 until done.

I cut the strips in half, easier to cook evenly and it fits on the sandwich quite nicely.

I have the advantage of working in a restaurant. I cook mine on a huge flat-top grill (big-ass griddle for those of you south of the Mason-Dixon). Thick cut peppered bacon, yummy.

I don't cook but I voted anyway because my wife gets up and makes me 3 slices of bacon and 3 eggs 5 to 6 days a week.
I will split a brat, stuff it with sauerkraut, wrap it in bacon, and throw it on a grill from time to time too.

I just made BLTs for dinner (gotta eat all those home grown tomatoes)...the best bacon in my opinion is cooked in a frying pan. I've tried it in the microwave, but it doesn't compare.

Some bakers call them cooling racks. And yes, lining the pan with foil makes the cleanup so much easier.
Okay, I have several of those racks for when I make bread.
