What is the best method of microwaving bacon?
- 9 months ago
Microwaving is not a good option for cooking, if you are in a jam and you need to thaw out frozen bacon, then clean your sink with hot soapy water, rinse, grab a plate and lean up against one side and put the slab of bacon in its original wrapping, and run COLD water slowly over it for 10 or so minutes. This will thaw it properly. Microwaves kill your food and you.Source(s): Retired Navy Cook.

Don't! I cook mine on a hot plate in a frying pan so it comes out cooked, crisp.

My friend Paul weaves himself a mat of bacon for BLTs and cooks it in the microwave (between a sandwich of double paper towels. I'm a fan of laying it out on a sheet pan and cooking it at 350° F for 16 to 19 minutes, depending on the desired crispy factor.

You can get a 'bacon rack', for microwave use, it does not seem to brown the same as frying or broilling though!

I agree with putting a couple sheets of paper towel under the bacon and one or two on top of the bacon on high for 5 min. That technique also makes delicious chicken skin and renders out most of the fat but add a little salt.

Let's look at the word microwave; cooking from the inside out, best to fry that bacon in a pan on the stove for overall better taste.

I put the bacon strips (don’t overlap) on top of two paper towels, then put a single paper towel over the bacon. Cooking time depends on the power of your microwave.

Don't burn it.
Cook it on regular time. Not preset. And put a paper towel over it to avoid grease splatter.
