    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.
    Been maintaining under 9 stone on a Primal diet since Oct 2012.
    Commitment and hard work gets you there.
    You can 'diet' and still have a life if you really,really want to.

    Your weight is not going up for no reason. It's going up because you consume more than you burn.

    Learn to say 'NO' as Xmas is getting closer.

    95 days until Xmas.

    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!!!
