Crispy Bacon - In a Cast Iron Skillet
September 09, 2013
"My husband likes his bacon crispy ( not chewy) and I have tried a number of methods-this works well."
Place Bacon strips close together in a cold heavy cast iron skillet, you can overlap a bit but don't crowd.
Turn the burner on medium and let the bacon cook. Don't touch it until the fat is partly rendered.
Pour off the excess fat and turn over the strips. Cook until the fat renders off again then pour off the excess fat once more.
Cook the bacon a bit more, turning if needed, until there are white bubbles present. Take the bacon out and let crisp on paper towels.
