fat on bacon

#4
It's easier to cut it off before cooking, same goes for all fat on meat although I do remove chicken skin (on a whole chicken) after cooking otherwise the breast is too dry.
Good luck on SW in the New Year!

I always cut it off before, then theres no temptation to eat it once it is cooked....not much will power me lol

I cut it off before but funnily enough, caught my OH cutting it off AFTER the other day and asked why (he knows I do it before) and he said he can't see a difference...grrr.

Thats me too. If I cook it with the fat on I will be tempted not to cut it off at all so I cut if off when its all white and yucky :D

I trim all my meat before cooking except a whole chicken for roasting which I take off afterwards. Don't just throw it away though, this time of year it goes down a treat on the bird table.

I prefer to cut it off before otherwise I would cook it crispy and then be too tempted to eat it.
Be sure to cut if off though whichever way you do it as leaving it on turns a 'free' choice into 5 syns a slice!!

But surely if you do this then you might as well have cooked your bacon is lard because it will absorb the fat during cooking?
maybe i'm doing it wrong????? i never got told there was a right way to do it, as once i've cooked it i cut off the fat and pat it with kitchen towel so all the fat comes off it. xx
