In Case You've Wondered
My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.
If you're here for the stories, I started another blog: scratchingforchange.blogspot.com
One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.
I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.

The Best Way to Cook Bacon
Years ago, after being spattered by bacon grease, and having to stand at the stove, I started cooking it on low heat. It cooks slower, but the bacon cooks evenly, and there is no spatter. It's not generally done this way by most people, and I've been criticized for using this method, but it gives me time to sip coffee, avoid the constant turning, and is a more enjoyable to me. Breakfast on the weekend should be pleasant, and not rushed.

We do it (cook bacon) in the oven on cookie sheets.ReplyDelete
I've never cooked it in the oven, but that sounds like a good idea.Delete
I use a cast iron pot. Start with leftover bacon grease, heat it up, toss in the bacon, cook to desired crispiness, scoop out, now you've got more bacon grease to use...ReplyDelete
Beans - that sounds as close to 'perpetual motion' as anything I've heard of ;-)Delete
My mother did the same. She'd use the bacon grease to flavor food.Delete
I prefer the slow stove method as well. I save the grease in a 1 C glass measuring cup in the fridge until it's full, then into the freezer in a ziploc bag.ReplyDelete
The grease adds flavor to any kind of bean. That, and makes some good tortillas.Delete
That's how my wife does it.ReplyDelete
The only problem I've found is cooking thick cut bacon too long. The lean gets like jerky.Delete
Is there a wrong way?ReplyDelete
I think not.
not sure about this, but any post with 'bacon' in the title will get more attention.ReplyDelete
