When it's good, bacon can be one of the most delicious things ever. But when it's bad, it can be sorely disappointing. The challenge is making it crispy without burning it. This is tricky to do because it takes longer for the fat to cook than for the rest of slice, so it's easy to char the meat while waiting for the fat to render.
But the clever folks at America's Test Kitchen have figured out the ideal method for cooking bacon that's perfect every time. After watching this short video, we went straight to the store in the rain, bought a fresh packet of bacon and did it ourselves. It was fantastic. Give it a try. You won't be sorry.
