Grilling Bacon: A Guide to Cooking it Perfectly
I must admit, I never thought I'd have to write about how to cook bacon. After all, it's a pretty straightforward dish - or so I thought. That all changed when I stumbled upon a new way to prepare this breakfast staple. Is it really possible to grill bacon? Will it stick to the grill? Can I pull it off without setting myself or my kitchen on fire? With these questions in mind, I set out to test this trending cooking method.
Fortunately, my fears were soon put to rest when I came across a delectable grilled bacon salad recipe. Yes, it is possible to grill bacon! And the best part? It's easy, quick, and mess-free. You won't even believe how effortless it is!
So, how do you do it? First, you'll need some thick-cut bacon and a medium heat grill. Then, just follow these simple steps:
1. Lay the bacon slices on the hot grill grates using a long pair of tongs.
2. Cook for 2-3 minutes.
3. Lower the heat to low.
4. Flip the bacon over and cook for another 1-2 minutes.
5. Transfer the cooked bacon to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
It's that easy! But don't use regular cut bacon - it'll stick to the grill and ruin the whole experience.
Grilling bacon has numerous benefits over traditional frying, including:
- - No need to oil the grates beforehand
- - No messy clean-up afterwards, as all the drippings end up in the grill's drip pan
- - No overwhelming smell of bacon filling the house
- - No heat from the stove or oven, making it perfect for hot summer days
- - No greasy mess or popping while cooking
- - The ability to cook large quantities at once, rather than in separate batches
If you're tired of cleaning up grease splatters and stinky kitchens, then grilled bacon is the way to go. Try it once, and you'll never go back to frying again!
Prepare to be blown away by smoky grilled bacon strips – a new cooking technique that has me bursting with excitement! Don't hesitate to try it out and let me know how it goes.
To achieve the best results, use thick-cut or "butcher's cut" bacon as regular bacon may be too thin and flimsy for grilling. Begin by heating the grill to a medium-high temperature before turning the heat down to medium. Carefully lay out the bacon slices on the grill and cook for 2-3 minutes. To avoid flare-ups caused by bacon drippings, lower the heat or turn off at least one of the burners once you flip the bacon. Be sure to keep an eye on the bacon after flipping, as it cooks quickly and may burn easily. Once cooked, transfer the bacon onto a plate lined with paper towels and use as desired.
