Mistake #1: Cooking too much bacon
If you’re making bacon for just one or two people, why not pick up a slice or two at the butcher counter instead of those big packs? Not only will it be fresher than the pre-packaged strips, it won’t ever go to waste in your fridge.
Mistake #2: Taking things day by day
Mornings a little hectic at your house? When you’re doing your weekly meal-prep on Sunday, it doesn’t have to be only for lunch and dinner! There are so many ways to meal prep breakfast too, so make your bacon in advance. Just pop your pre-cooked slices in the microwave for 10-15 seconds to crisp each morning.
Mistake #3: Only cooking bacon on the stove
Baking bacon is a breeze, especially when you have other dishes cooking on your stovetop. This will save you from grease splatters and the clean-up from cooking in the oven couldn’t be easier. Whether you’re cooking for a crowd or simply want to make your own morning easier, using your oven is the way to go.
