  • Can you freeze bacon?

    Is it a problem to freeze bacon?

    I'm thinking on doing that with a few stripes of bacon that I only want to use as fuel for frying stuff.
    The idea is that if it's frozen then I can easily get a pice and break it into small pieces and fry away . Plus I could keep them frozen for weeks...

      The only problem with freezing bacon is it takes longer to cook.

        I buy large slabs and freeze them in smaller sections to thaw out as I go. I have never had any problems.

          It's expensive here, so I buy some on sale and freeze it. Works fine.

            That is a good idea and why did I never think of it. A whole pound is too much for my family in the fridge so I will freeze a few slices seperately and then take them out of the freezer as I need them.

              yeah, you can easily freeze it, but I would not go and slice it first, a block retains much more of its consistency then slices

              btw, if it is cured bacon, it keeps well for 3 weeks in the fridge, no need to freeze (I regularly buy 1kg, and then keep it in the fridge)

                You can even cook it then freeze it, but bacon going bad is never an issue at my house, running out of bacon often is. I usually cook 2 lbs or more and keep it in the fridge. When the bacon container is empty we cook more.

                    I use the baking method Mark talks about in his cook-book, store it in tupperware in the fridge. I go through about a pound and a half per week, and I even let my wife have a few slices. No need to freeze for me. But I can't imagine freezing it would be a problem.

                        No problem at all. I freeze it all the time. Also, the precooking and storing in fridge works great. Just heat it up in the Microwave, oven or pan when you are ready to eat it.

                          I don't eat bacon myself because eating pork makes my arthritis flare up but my son likes a few slices with his breakfast.
