This morning I woke up hungry - unusual for me because I normally don't want breakfast for a couple of hours. And I wasn't just hungry for anything, I wanted some bacon. I'm not even a big bacon lover but today I needed bacon!
Sometimes I wonder if our bodies crave things it needs....you know like when you're really wanting orange juice is it because you need Vitamin C? But what in the world would I need in bacon? Anyway I've been wanting to try baking it instead of frying it - something I saw on Pinterest so that's what I did. Preheat to 400 degrees, put in a pan that has a lip for holding in the grease (in other words not a cookie sheet!) and bake for about 15 minutes. No lid. Monitor it because I suppose it would depend on how much you're trying to bake. Drain and pat it dry. It was crisp and perfect! I don't think I'll ever fry it again!
