My hubby is a huge bacon fan. Breakfast just isn't complete without it. He's pretty particular about how it is cooked too. One thing we both hate is when you cook up a pound of bacon and 10 seconds after it's hit the pan the sides are curling up, the ends have curled-- this pound of bacon all the sudden resembles curly fries. NOT fun! SO to avoid the drama of curly bacon simply open your bag at the top, fill with cold water and then dump the water out. Place bacon in a hot pan and cook. Bacon comes out flat and straight and perfect for sandwiches and burgers!
