Random Bacon Post

Tuesday, February 7, 2012
For me, bacon is a food group (along with cheese and butter, of course).  Because of that, we always have bacon in the apartment. It's an essential ingredient in some of my go-to quick dinners-- breakfast for dinner and spaghetti carbonara.  But even we can't finish a package of bacon before it's past its prime, so it usually ends up in the freezer. Then I get annoyed when all I want is a few slices of bacon, but it's one solid mass (oh the serious problems I face). So imagine my excitement when I read this tip in Cooks Illustrated... before you freeze bacon, roll each slice separately with parchment paper, then you easily unroll it when you're ready, take what you want and put the rest back in the freezer.

Genius (yet so simple).

  1. Ahah! I have been doing that with plastic wrap but it breaks when you unwrap it and freezes to the bacon. Parchment paper is a much better option!

    What kind of bacon do you buy? That piece looks perfect and thick.

  2. I really love that you two good friends of mine are comparing bacon tips. Abby wants to have an Iron Chef competition dinner featuring bacon...

  3. This is a great tip!! I did it and love it!!
