    Storing cooked bacon?

    Shop Now
    I really want to make bacon for lunch but don't have a fridge right now. I will have access to a fridge tonight so I was wondering if I could cook all of the bacon and store it crumbled in a container at room temp? It will be at least 7-8 hours. I mean, I've eaten pizza sitting out all night in the a.m. So how bad can it be?

    I would be okay with it. It cools off fast on its own so it's not sitting there for a long time at the nice warm bacteria growing temperature and it's salty, which acts like a preservative...as far as I know....

    It can sit at room temperature...don't make bacon cold; that just will taste nasty. Especially with all the cold, congealed fat.

    keeping fully-cooked bacon at room temp for a few hours is no biggie. raw bacon, er... not so much.

    Cold pizza and coke used to be my favorite breakfast in my pre-primal days. Round Table pizza was the best cold.

    I have taken cold bacon on 1000+ mile road trips for a good snack.
    I wish I liked to eat liver.
