One of my favorite cashiers was asking me the other day were there ever coupons for the pre-cooked bacon. He loves BLTs he said but hates frying bacon just for himself. He had been paying $6+ for the ready to eat bacon! Ouch!
We were talking and I told him about my favorite pan tip ever: The Nordic Ware Microwave Bacon Tray ($11.72 w/ free Super Saver Shipping on orders $35+)
I;ve used this for years to make perfectly crisp bacon in the microwave! It’s easy to use, clean and doesn’t make a mess on your stove (and you don’t have to heat up the oven). I told him to cook the bacon on it and keep in a ziploc bag in the fridge- he’d have enough bacon for lots of BLT sandwiches ready to go and not at $6 for just a few slices.
You can often pick up a package of bacon for $3 or under (my stock up price is around $2 for 16 oz) and those ready to eat are usually about 6-8 oz for $5-$8!
