Bacon can be a messy cooking experience, and especially when you would only need a few pieces, it can seem like too much effort for the end result. Fortunately, you can freeze cooked bacon for later use.
How to freeze cooked bacon
- Bacon as little or as much as you'd like to freeze!
- Cook bacon on the skillet as you would normally, but leave it slightly undercooked as to how you would normally prefer it (it will finish cooking when reheated).
- Allow to cool, then freeze. You can flash freeze then store in a ziploc, or individually wrap it for the freezer.
On serving day
- To use, remove from freezer and set on counter for a few minutes to defrost. Pop into the microwave and cook for 10-20 seconds (or more depending on how many pieces of bacon you are reheating).
