Listening to 0bx, I made this mornings bacon last night using the slow cooking method. Possessing an electric stove isn't ideal, but still works. I set the burner to 3 and let the bacon cook for a good 25 minutes per slice. Definitely a little more interesting than the fast method, no accidental burning and no rush either. (And no splatter). Might try it on 2 tonight.
We certainly know that it's not that over-priced, poorly disguised ham they call Canadian Bacon. As for what Scots may call bacon, who knows? If shearing is a first step in the processing, I don't want to know...
Loving the new show United States of Bacon. http://bacontoday.com/united-states-of-bacon-2/[^] I swear the host gained 15 pounds from the beginning to the end of the first episode. There are so many bacon recipes on this show but the episode I watched had maple bacon ice cream sandwiches that looked so delicious. I want that.... can someone make that for me???
It was, but now it's a reminder that I'm not eating bacon for at least the next 54 days, though my 6 year old talked me into picking up a pound of bacon at the store last night so he and his sister wouldn't be so deprived.
I've gained about 20 pounds over the past 4 months, so I'm on a mission to rid myself of that. My plan involves avoiding anything with added sugar and that includes all the decent bacon that I've come across. I can still eat plenty of pasture or grass fed meat or eggs so it's not too bad. I had a fantastic chuck roast last night.
For me, the trick is to start with a cold pan and set my stove on just over 4 (which is also the right temperature on my stove for easy over eggs.) I minimize turning and it takes about 10 minutes to get to that no-quite-crispy state. I love piping hot bacon, so I don't let it sit over night. The biggest problem is not eating it all before my eggs are done.
(I also have a fondness for some breakfast sausage, which I cook the same way. On Sunday mornings, my youngest daughter is over, so I also make hash browns. Needless to say, Sunday mornings are my favorite for all reasons--when my granddaughter is there, it goes to 11--well, except the times she says she doesn't want hash browns and then changes here mind and I have to split mine.)
