Bacon, Bacon, Bacon!

The first thing you would smell entering my grandmother’s house when I was a kid was bacon. She must have fried it up once or twice a day. She even kept the drippings (which she used to cook everything in) in an large mason jar on a shelf over the stove. I mean why cook with olive oil or butter when you’ve got bacon grease on hand? Bonkers good!

There are pros and cons to the different ways of cooking bacon, but as this video will show you whether you choose to do it on the stove top or in the oven, it’s easy to turn out incredibly crispy, crunchy scrumptiousness whenever the mood suits you!
