    Hints/Tips for Crispy Bacon??

    Has anyone got any??

    I love bacon but whenever I cook it in frylight it seems to be really chewy and not particularly nice at all...

    Is dry frying in a cold pan the way to go??

    Or oven baking??

    Or synning the oil and being done with it??!!

    I put mine in the oven for 15 mins and it comes out crispy.

    If you want it enough you won't keep finding excuses to not do it.

    I microwave mine; my sister was horrified when she found out, but has since had to admit that my bacon tastes great I bought a bacon microwave plate (under a fiver), then place the bacon on, cover with a piece kitchen towel and bob on normal cook for 4 minutes, it *always* comes out lovely and crisp!

    I just grill mine and it's always crispy. If I'm feeling lazy and don't want to wash the grill pan, I just stick some foil over the rack.

    The thought of cooking any meat in a microwave doesn't appeal to me, but I may have to get one of those plates just to try it!

    My grill doesn't work at the moment... In fact, my whole oven is very temperamental which is why I was asking about the temp for the oven, mine currently will only go up to 170!!!
