The Big Questions ~ #1

May 20, 2008

Ok, so I have some questions that I need some input on. Here is the first one. How in the world do you cook turkey bacon?

Seems simple enough, but apparently not for me. The package recommended 2 minutes in the microwave. So I put four slices of the turkey bacon on my handy-dandy bacon cooker. I set the timer for 2 minutes and waited anxiously. This was the first time I have had turkey bacon, so I didn’t really know what to expect. But I guarantee that what came out of my microwave was not what turkey bacon was supposed to look like.

My bacon was black as black can be. It was fried beyond fried. So I figured okay, 2 minutes was too long. I’ll try 1 minute and 30 seconds. Once the 90 seconds was up, the bacon was definitely not cooked all the way. So being the brilliant chef that I am, I surmise that maybe 1 minute 45 seconds would do the trick.

I kid you not, after 1 minute and 45 seconds, what did I have? I had two slices that were burnt to a crisp and two slices that were still raw. How in the world is that possible?

So if you’ve got any tips or secrets for cooking turkey bacon perfectly, please leave me a comment with your ideas.

    The best way to cook Turkey Bacon? …. Don’t

    Sounds utterly repulsive and maddeningly difficult to microwave.

    “Fry” it in a pan. It’s easier to see it as it cooks, or bake it.

    Holy Cow! A cooking question I can ANSWER! Get a calendar! This is a historical moment! Here’s what you do: You put 4-6 slices in between two paper towels and microwave for about 2 minutes. Wow – I feel so validated! 🙂
    See you soon!

    OMG Did Hel1 freeze over? 🙂 Thanks, Karen. That’s awesome.

    Although, I’m not sure I’ll make it again. I think I’ll stick with turkey sausage!
