The best way to cook bacon in a pan is to start with a cold pan and lay the bacon strips flat in a single layer. Cook on medium heat, flipping occasionally, until desired crispiness is reached.
To prevent splattering, you can partially cover the pan with a lid or use a splatter guard. You can also add a small amount of water to the pan before cooking the bacon, which will help reduce splattering.
Yes, it is safe to cook bacon in the microwave, but it may not turn out as crispy as cooking it in a pan. Be sure to use a microwave-safe dish and cover the bacon with a paper towel to prevent splattering.
Yes, cooking bacon in the oven is a great option for cooking large batches. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and place the bacon on a baking sheet lined with foil. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until desired crispiness is reached.
