So you want to make perfect golden crispy bacon? You just need to follow a few simple and easy principles.
- First off you do not want to cook it to fast. You want to start it slowly at first and allow some the fat to render for it to cook in. Allowing it to cook through.
- As the temperature increases the bacon will start caramelize and turn a crispy golden brown, too fast and it will turn to dark and not cook evenly.
So if your using a frying pan start the bacon off slowly, gradually increasing the temperature, turning the bacon every so often. Patience is key here so take your time. You can also opt for the best method used in restaurants across the Country. Simply lay out your bacon flat on a high rimmed baking sheet and cooking it in a oven at 325-350 degrees for 12-20 minutes. The oven provides a slow even heat and gradually cooks your bacon to a nice golden brown. Cooking time will vary based on your oven and the thickness of the bacon. Pretty soon through a little trial you will get the exact time down for cooking it. Another benefit is that you will do away with all of those annoying splatters on your stove to clean up. Just remember to use the right pan…spilling bacon fat in a oven can cause a nasty fire.
