|Bacon destined for the oven.|
I buy a package of bacon and bake it in my oven and I recommend you do the same. It's revolutionary! It's quick (17-20 minutes), doesn't fill your house with the aroma of cooking bacon (nice while you're cooking it, but kinda gross later), and it's great to have on hand to throw a little bit into a recipe.
Use a rimmed baking sheet to ensure you don't start a grease fire with bacon grease dripping into your oven. As you can see from the photo, I line mine with heavy-duty foil, which is an awesome invention. I was able to peel it up and toss away all the grease without spilling any.
And cooked bacon fits onto a gallon freezer bag really well. I separate the layers with waxed paper.
I cook my bacon to be a little less-done so later when I want to warm it up, I can still cook it a bit in the microwave. I cover a plate with paper towel, toss on some bacon, and put more paper towel on top. Cook it for only a bit to warm it up and finish cooking. Remember that bacon will continue to crisp up as it sits a bit. I chop it up and toss into random recipes. I like it for creamy dishes like alfredo, or to add a little something extra to homemade pizza.
