    1. Let bacon reach room temperature.

    2. Place bacon in skillet, and set over medium heat.

    3. After about 10 minutes, depending on the temperature of your burner, flip bacon once.

    • Slotted baking sheet or regular baking sheet

    You will need:

    • Microwave-safe plate

    • Bacon

    1. Place two layers of paper towels on plate.

    2. Set up to six strips of bacon on plate.

    3. Place one layer of paper towel over bacon strips.
