I thought I would do aÂ post on pork.
I’m serious people……it’s getting bad over here.
I am down to like one pair of capri’s that fit me.
But, less I regress….let’s move forward.
I will be busy staining Adirondack chairs today but in the meantime, I wanted to share a way that a good friend of mine showed me in how to prepare bacon.
I know you are thinking…..”how to prepare bacon?”
How hard is that?
Well, this is the deal.
I hardly EVER fry food.
You wouldn’t know that by looking at my hind end….but I don’t.
Â Frying bacon is so messy…..and smelly…..and poppy and greasy……
My son and nephew can go through a pound of bacon in less than three minutes.
So, my friend…who is starting a wonderful cooking blog soon….. shared “her way” of “Makin’ bacon”.
Believe it or not…this tutorial will be simple.
I’m being sarcastic.
You all know that I like to keep things simple and sweet around here.
All you will need is:
Cookie warming racks (I had to go buy them….who needs racks when you make cookies out of a tub?)
Now……this is where it is so easy.
Put the cookie racks on the cookie sheets.
Put da’ bacon on the cookie racks.
Put them in oven on 350 for 20 minutes.
My racks look HIDEOUS BY THE WAY!
Keep in mind they are about 15 years old.
Be kind to me.
I’m not gross.
I don’t think.
But anyways…….It’s that easy!
The bacon comes out perfect….
There is no smoky grease.
I just drain my grease into a glass jar that I keep bacon grease in for when I make chocolate milkshakes.
Yep…that’s where I put my grease.
I just wanted to see if you guys were still awake.
The bacon really comes out perfect.
I know I have said that before.
But it really does.
And no splattered grease everywhere.
They also do not cook in “their” grease so I feel like if bacon can be healthier…..this may be the closest way.
I take papertowels and press the bacon to remove excess grease when I place on a serving plate….
Just so you know.
The cookie sheets and racks are easy to clean.
I clean my cookie sheets in the sink and put my racks in the dishwasher.
So…..is this totally useless material to you?
Do you fry food?
Do you eat bacon?
Do you fear being seen in your bathing suit?
Do you have more than one pair of capris that fit?
Well, I hope you are as impressed with this “Makin’ Bacon” recipe as I was.
I will show you pictures later today on my chairs!
Hope to have them finished today.
