10. Microwave Bacon
If you don’t have time to stand over the stove or wait 25 minutes for your oven to cook your bacon, the microwave method can’t be beaten. To cook bacon in your microwave, first line a microwave-safe plate with paper towels. Use several sheets of paper towels in order to fully absorb excess grease as the bacon cooks. Place your strips of bacon in a single layer on the paper towels, being careful not to allow the strips to overlap. Cover the bacon with an additional layer of two paper towels. Microwave on high for about one minute per slice of bacon. After this time, check for desired doneness and microwave in 20-second intervals until you achieve the desired crispness.
9. Muffin Tin Bacon Cups
If you love bacon and eggs, try cooking them together in delicious muffin tin bacon cups. To make this recipe, first use slices of bacon to line the compartments of a muffin tin, forming circular cups. Bake at 400 degrees for ten minutes, and then carefully pour off the excess grease. Next, simply crack an egg into the center of each bacon ring and bake for 10 more minutes. Additionally, you can get creative by whipping eggs with cheese and veggies before pouring them into the bacon and baking up some delicious bacon, egg and cheese bites.
8. Bacon Pancakes
If you think bacon and pancakes go great served side by side on your breakfast plate, wait until you try bacon pancake dippers. To make these delights, perfect for dipping into maple or blueberry syrup, first cook your bacon. Next, whip up a batch of your favorite pancake batter and load the batter into a squeeze bottle. Then, squeeze pancake batter onto a pre-heated griddle in a shape slightly larger than a slice of bacon. Press a bacon slice into the batter and squeeze additional batter on top. Continue cooking the pancake as usual and then serve with syrup for dipping.
