Bacon for the Family or a Crowd

Rating: 4.5 stars 836
This is the way to get crisp bacon without having to constantly turn it, watch over it, or get burnt by splatters of grease. It 'fries' up flat and doesn't curl, which looks great beside a breakfast plate of eggs, and makes BLT sandwiches much easier. Very nice when feeding a family or crowd.

"We had this for dinner tonight. We cut the chicken a little smaller, about 2 bites per piece, laid the bacon on top, and secured it with toothpicks." – judy5674
