Hi, I am Joe Barrett and welcome to the Rookie Cook. There are few things in this world that are better than a slice of bacon. In fact, I can only think of one thing that is better than a slice of bacon and that is more bacon. I love bacon.
Because bacon is so freaking good, you need to know how to cook it. So, take your bacon out of the package, like so, and you make sure you want to take out more than one because you are going to need more than one because remember, bacon is so freaking good. So, we are going to take the thongs, and we are going to place them in this skillet and we want to make sure that all sides of the bacon are touching. You do not want to stuck the bacon, so we got that and we are going to use our thongs and separate that out a little bit.
And with the heat on low, you want to cook your bacon because bacon is going to cook quickly and it will taste like burnt bark which is bad. So, as the process is going on, we are going to take your thongs, we are to flip that per pieces of bacon over every so often because again you want to make sure it cooks on all sides. Everybody wants their bacon differently, somewhere between rubber and crispy, extra crispy is probably about right. Bacons is going to take time, it is going to take patience for you to learn how to cook it. So, practice and you would think more bacon that way. Because remember, bacon is so freaking good. So, once the fat and the bacon turned out opaque that is probably about the time to turn it off.
Oh glorious bacon. Now, you want to take it with your thongs from the pan over to a plate that is covered with a paper towel. Okay, so just like that. So let’s get the rest of this bacon. And the reason you do that is because bacon grease. Although bacon grease does make the bacon delicious, you do not want a lot of it. So with that, take another set, cover that and just kind of gently press it down, getting all that delicious, wonderful bacon grease off there because grease is not the word. Now, as for what is in the pan, you want to leave that setting there and let it cool.
Do not dump this down the sink. Bad idea. I can even repeat what would happen to your sink on this show, it is so bad. But what you want to do, once it is cool, pour it into a glass or metal container that is disposable and throw it away that way. Again, do not pour it down the sink. So, this bacon, we will let that cool and then I am going to eat. Well, your bacon is now had plenty of time to cool and I will not stay in for wasted bacon so, God Bless you. And, God Bless bacon. So good. Thanks for watching the Rookie Cook. If you have any Rookie questions about cooking, go to the comment section and let us know all about it.
