Wish I lived closer. I would so come to the Bacon Dinner Party. Maybe I need to do a West Coast version....
Wow...and just when you think you've seen it all. That is impressive. Now it's time to search the web for an even more outrageous idea for bacon

Re: The bacon thread

I'm thinking of making my own bacon for the dinner party. DOes anyone know how or where to look? I don;t have a smoker or grill, just an oven and slow cooker.

Re: The bacon thread

Just wanted to chime in and say that I love bacon.

I enjoy the classic 4 eggs and 2 pieces of bacon for breakfast with some fruit.

I am really wanting to make that bacon log that has been posted on here, it looks delicious.

Re: The bacon thread

So I assume the nutrition facts on a package of bacon is talking about the raw stuff..anybody have any #'s on what it would be after I cook it and drain the grease?

Re: The bacon thread

why would you drain the grease?
only reason i don't lick the frying pan is because it's too damn hot!!

Re: The bacon thread

Sean, where did you find all that stuff? I have to get some of those bacon band-aids for my local farmer....who has been out of bacon for months. I actually had a dream about bacon a few nights ago. Prompted my to buy some grocery store bacon. YUCK!!!!

Re: The bacon thread

Lei,

The nutritional contents of cooked bacon is 100% pure awesomeness.

The fat would decrease significantly, salt would go down a bit and the protein will stay the same. As for exact numbers, you could weight the grease in the pan and subtract that from the total fat in the amount you are cooking and that should give a good estimate.

I like to cook veggies in bacon grease. it's very tasty.

Re: The bacon thread

I was going to keep this to myselft but hey...it is the bacon thread.

I microwave my bacon. Lie 2 or 3 paper towels 4 strips of bacon 2 more pieces of paper towel on top. Microwave for ~3:00 - 3:20. Remove. Enjoy.

My wife showed me that. It's great if you're like me and don't allow extra time for cooking in the AM. It comes out crispy but the paper towel does absorb the yummy grease...
