    Has anyone made the bacon in the bar pan? Could you fill me in how long and what temperature? Or did you make it in the micro? Thanks :)

    I put a lb of bacon in the bar pan and pop it in the oven at 325. It usually takes about 30 minutes to get it the way I like it. I have a double oven, so I usually (on Sunday morning) put a bar pan of bacon and a bar pan of pancake mix in each oven, go up stairs and shower and get ready and breakfast is ready when I come down. :)

    Microwave and Oven

    Hi Alison,

    I've made the bacon in the small bar pan in the microwave, and the bar pan in the oven. For the microwave, I use roughly 1 minute per slice of bacon. I have to warn you, though, at least for me, it took off the seasoning of my pan. I don't know why - maybe it got too hot? I haven't heard of this happening to anyone else, though. For the oven, I use 400 degrees, 30-45 minutes depending on how crispy you like it.

    The bacon turns out wonderfully using either the microwave or oven.

    HTH,
    Diane

    As an aside, we do soy bacon in the small bar pan in our toaster oven all the time, and it turns out great!

    Bacon in the Bar Pan Tip

    At National Conference, in the Kitchen Show w/Wow class that I took, they said to put parchment paper in the bottom of the pan first...makes clean up a snap, and is safer when taking the pan out of the oven.

    As far as I am concerned, this is the ONLY way to do bacon. I attached a doc called "A Day in the Life of a Bar Pan" that I received along the way. I give it to any customer who buys (or already owns) the bar pan.

    Enjoy!

    The only way we cook it now

    The only way my husband and I will cook bacon now is via the oven on the bar pan. It's absolutely wonderful! Plus it seasons your bar pan like nothing else!

    We cook ours at 400-425, and just watch it (sorry, I can't tell you the exact time it takes).
