    Traveling with Bacon

    I'll be staying at a hotel this weekend and I want to bring some of my home cured bacon with me, I want to know the best way to cook or heat bacon in a microwave.

    1. Bring raw bacon and cook in microwave, I'll need instructions as I don't have a micro at home.

    2. Precook bacon and reheat in microwave.

    Which do you think is best?

    Cook at home and reheat. Crispy bacon should be able to last a day or two unrefrigerated.

    I always cook at least one pack of bacon at a time so I don't have to cook it every day. So I vote for precook
    Started Primal June 2012 at 148.5lbs, and 5' 1", reached goal weight in 5 months.
    Lowest weight 93lbs - too thin. Now stable at around 100lbs much better weight for me at my age.
    Primal, minus eggs, dairy and a myriad of other allergens.

    If you precook it do you just zap it in the micro for a couple of seconds? I'll probably eat mine at room temp, but I think my son will want his hot.

    Yeah, anything over 20 seconds is probably going to overcook it instead of warm it

    Bring a roll of paper towels to absorb any grease that drips off as it heats.

    Thanks for the input. It sounds like precooking is the way to go. I was thinking paper towels and paper plates would be a good idea.

    Precook bacon. Let cool. In a double boiler, melt chocolate. Dip bacon in chocolate and sprinkle with your favorite salt. Let cool. Tell me you love me when you get home. LOL

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.
