Frying pan/Flat top grill:
Heat to 210ºC. Brush pan/flat top with cooking oil. Place rashers in pan ensuring they are not touching. Loosen from cooking surface. Fry for a minute per side. Remove and serve immediately.
Heat the grill. Place rashers that have been brushed with cooking oil onto a rack. Grill for 1 minute per side. This produces bacon with an appetising pink hue with crispy brown edges.
Place rashers on a special bacon microwave dish or make use of a paper plate folded fan shaped to collect the fat. Place rashers on top of the folds and cover with paper towel. Microwave for 30 seconds on high.
For best results defrost bacon over night in a fridge.
Overcooking or holding for long periods in a bain-marie will dry the bacon out with a resultant loss of tenderness.
