How To Cook Bacon At Home

There are few aromas that get the attention of absolutely EVERYONE, the smokey deliciousness of The Lucky Pig's Bacon is one of them.

There are several delicious ways to cook bacon. Here are a few popular methods:

  1. Pan-Frying*: Heat a skillet or frying pan over medium heat. Place the bacon slices in a single layer and cook until crispy, flipping occasionally. Drain the cooked bacon on a paper towel to remove excess grease.

  2. Oven-Baking: Preheat your oven to 200°C. Arrange bacon slices on a baking tray lined with baking paper or a wire rack. Bake for about 15-20 minutes, or until crispy. This method allows the bacon to cook evenly and reduces spattering.

  3. Microwave: Place a few layers of paper towels on a microwave-safe plate. Lay the bacon slices on top, without overlapping. Cover with another layer of paper towels. Microwave on high for 1-2 minutes per slice, depending on the desired crispness. Keep an eye on it to prevent burning.

  4. Air-Frying: Preheat your air fryer to 200°C. Place the bacon in a single layer in the air fryer basket. Cook for about 8-10 minutes, flipping halfway through, until crispy. The air fryer helps render the fat and gives the bacon a crispy texture.

  5. Grilling: Preheat your grill to medium heat. Place the bacon strips directly on the grill grates or use a grill pan. Cook for a few minutes on each side until crispy and cooked to your liking. Grilling adds a smoky flavor and texture to the bacon.

Remember to adjust the cooking time based on the thickness of the bacon and your preferred level of crispness.

Experiment with these methods to find your favorite way to cook bacon and enjoy it in various dishes or as a delicious standalone treat.

*Bacon that is cooked uncovered can spatter and leave mess, we always recommend using a spatter guard when cooking bacon on the stove top.
