Bacon! Bacon! Bacon!
Bacon in the microwave is demonstrated in the above video along with
Refrigerator Biscuits and Sunny Side Up Egg.
When you cook bacon on the stove, the grease cooks out and the bacon sits in it. That
grease gets hot from the pan, and helps to cook the meat. Cooking bacon in your microwave reduces the
amount of grease your bacon cooks in.
Utensils for Cooking Bacon in the Microwave Currently Available On The Internet
Do you need a special utensil to cook bacon in your microwave?
No! The easiest way to cook bacon in the microwave is with paper towels on
a paper plate (see instructions at bottom of this page). However, if you are interested in
collecting the bacon drippings, or are concerned about a leaner, healthier way to cook your bacon, there
are several products currently on the market, which facilitate cooking bacon in the microwave:
Microwave Bacon/Meat Grill Bacon/Meat Grill is a healthy alternative to grilling on top of
the stove. Instead of allowing your bacon or sausage to sit in grease as they cook, this grill has a
raised cooking area so fats and oils drain away from the meats as they cook. A pouring lip allows you
to easily drain away the excess fat. The grill has a round shape that rotates in the microwave, and a
reversible, flat side that can be used for baking or defrosting other foods.
Bacon Wave is the amazing patented breakthrough that cooks perfect bacon
in any microwave. It's special configuration lets you fit up to 14 full strips of
bacon. It's designed to prevent curling and breakage. It's special design allows fat
and grease to drip into it's lower pan away from bacon. Less grease, fat, cholesterol,
and calories. Dishwasher Safe. Bacon Wave is stackable, allowing you to cook up to 28
strips of bacon at a time with the purchase of additional trays.
Bacon Without Grease? Yes, With
Bacon Genie! All the fatty grease and cholesterol drip into reservoir below. Microwave up to 12
strips, then dispose of grease via the pour spout. Includes tweezers to remove bacon without risk of burns.
Top rack dishwasher safe plastic measures 1¼ x 5¾ x 6¾".
Here are the instructions for cooking Bacon in the microwave, from Microwave Cooking for One by Marie T. Smith:
To collect bacon drippings, cook bacon in a dish with a rack. Cover bacon with paper towel to prevent splattering.
To cook 2 or 3 slices of bacon:
Place a paper towel* on a paper plate and lay bacon on top. Cover with another paper
towel. Cook 1:45 minutes (_____) at 100% power for two slices or 2:40 minutes (_____) at 100%
power for three slices until bacon is well done. Drain on paper towel before serving.
To cook 4 slices of bacon:
Place a paper towel on a paper plate and lay 2 slices bacon on top. Cover with a second
paper towel. Lay remaining 2 slices bacon on top of that and cover with third paper towel. Cook 3:30
minutes (_____) at 100% power until well done. Drain on paper towel before serving.
To cook 1 lb. of bacon:
Place a paper towel on a paper plate and lay 3 slices bacon on top. Cover with a second
paper towel. Lay next 3 slices on top, cover with another paper towel, and continue layering remaining bacon
3 slices at a time (A paper towel can not absorb the grease from more than 3 slices of bacon. Putting more
slices in a layer will cause excess grease to ooze out onto bottom of oven.) Cook 15:00 minutes (_____) at
100% power until well done. It is better to undercook bacon at first and check as additional cooking time
progresses than to try to salvage a pound of overcooked bacon.
*When using paper towels in the microwave, ONLY use solid white paper
towels. Do not use paper towels with color designs imprinted for decoration.
