How to Cook Perfect Bacon
Curtis Stone shares his sizzling trade secret to cooking perfect bacon, whether you pan-fry it or bake it in the oven.
Step 1: Bacon Types
There are a variety of bacon types to choose from: thick-cut or thin cut, smoked or non-smoked, naturally smoked vs. liquid smoked, and with or without sodium nitrite. Sodium nitrite is a preservative and coloring additive that may be a health risk.
Step 2: Never Cook Bacon Naked!
Bacon's wonderful but it can be messy to cook in a pan with the grease spattering everywhere. Try cooking it in the oven. Heat your oven to 350º -375°. Get two cooking trays, cover one with kitchen paper and lay your strips down, cover the bacon with a second sheet of kitchen paper. Place another cooking tray right over the top this will keep in the heat and keep your bacon flat.
