So, I went on da google, and the nice folk at delish served up an interesting, and new to me, method of making it in the ‘wave.
I have a microwave bacon cooker, but was never quite thrilled with the results. Still, armed with new instructions, I pulled it down from the high shelf and got to it.
Line your bacon cooker (or any ‘wave-safe plate) with two or three layers of paper towels, then arrange the bacon in a singe layer on top.
Note: do not try this with more than five or six strips of bacon at a time.
Place another two layers of paper towel on top of the bacon, and toss into the ‘wave for 2-1/2 minutes.
Take a look at your bacon, then put it back into the ‘wave for another 2-1/2 to three minutes. Mine was perfectly done and nicely crisped after two minutes.
Transfer to a paper towel lined plate and repeat with any remaining bacon.
Little fuss. No muss to speak of, and crunchy, crispity bacon.
