Breakfast with Bacon

Yesterday morning I made Bryan and I a traditional breakfast. You know the kind: eggs, bacon, toast - type thing? I decided to try the bacon on the Forman Grill because the package says I'm supposed to drain the grease from the skillet as I go along. (Yeah right! Someone as prone to getting burned as I am should not be pouring oil out of a hot skillet and trying to keep the bacon inside!)
It worked pretty well. Though the bacon wasn't quite crisp enough when the eggs and english muffins were already ready to eat. So I tossed it in the microwave to finish it off. I think I 'bout killed it! (See below.)

Anyone have any tips on cooking bacon or juggling cook times so everything is hot at once?

I'm almost ashamed to admit this but I eat that breakfast frequently. LOL

Bacon is always best when fried in its own fat! I usually put the whole package (strips separated) in a big baking pan and bake it in the oven. It cooks up nice and crisp without splattering all over the stove.

I'm a bit of a grill addict and insist bacon should be barely grilled (I like it pink and floppy) only thing I ever cooked in my george forman was grilled cheese sandwiches and kebabs.

Understandable why I gave it away.

My mam swears by frying it but blots it first and uses no extra fat.

I have a bacon pan that goes in the microwave. It has grooves so the grease all drains away and it cooks nicely. That's the only way I've ever had it done at home.

I put the bacon on paper towels and always start with one minute on high (unless I'm cooking like 4 pieces for a sandwich.) Then I turn the bacon over onto fresh paper and add about 20 or 30 more seconds on high depending on crispness desired.

Wow! Thanks for all the tips on cooking bacon. If anyone else has one... go ahead and add on. I am sure I will find my favorite way yet. :)
