1 Pound bacon
Take bacon out of refrigerator and let warm to room temperature for ten minutes. Preheat non-stick skillet for five minutes over medium heat. Drip water into the pan. If the water drops ball up and roll around, the pan’s ready for the bacon.
Place individual pieces of bacon in the pan and flatten out. Let the bacon pieces cook on one side until lightly browned, then use tongs to turn them over. Repeat until the bacon is perfectly brown and crisp and there’s no uncooked fat on the strips. If the bacon fat starts to smoke too much, turn the heat down a little until it stops.
As you remove the pieces and place them on paper towels to drain off the fat, add more strips to the pan. Do not drain the fat during the cooking process. It makes very crispy and tasty bacon.
When the bacon is all cooked. Allow the fat to cool, pour it into a can and discard it. Do not pour it down the drain or you’ll end up with a clogged sink.
