crispy or chewy?

How do you like your bacon?
It's split at this house. As for me, I'm a crispy gal...and since I do the fryin', well, there's a good chance it's gonna be crispy.

(Not that we have bacon often. But I was frying it up as a treat for breakfast tomorrow...and well...I got to talking with myself...and just wondered.)

Chewy for me, but I'll take bacon any way I can get it...wish I could be at your house in the morning...I can almost smell it!

not a big fan of bacon but I think everyone at this house that eats it, likes it crispy. My hubby is the bacon cooker when we have it and he cooks it well. I like eggs cooked in the fat left behind from the bacon. That is one of my favourite Saturday morning treats.

I like mine chewy as well but, will eat it either way as well. BTW if you have never made your bacon in the oven I sugest you try it the next time you make your bacon. I went to a pampered chef party awhile back and the lady sugested it. So I decided to try it no grease popping all over the place, and taste great. I just put a whole pound of bacon on the baking sheet and heat the oven to 450. I turn the bacon a few times while cooking.

When I make bacon at our house, it doesn't last long at all! I think my oldest daughter would eat a whole pound if I let her. We all like ours a little chewy, MMMMM!

Stacy...I cooked up 2 pounds last night, and the kids (okay John and I had a nibble too) snarfed it all for breakfast!!!
I made up pancakes last night to go with it...what a nice change from cold cereal, or oatmeal.
I'm a terrible morning person, so I try to get as much done ahead the night before. The kids just microwaved a plateful as they wandered into the kitchen and voila! Delicious, hot breakfast.

Jamie, Try this bacon shortcut -
separate 1# bacon and place on cookie sheet lined with foil. Bake in oven 400 degrees for 15-20minutes...
obviously longer if you want it more crispy.. no splatter marks! Great tip I got from my sister.
