    More evenly cooked, also. I'm sure it would cook even better if I used
    saved bacon grease in the pan, as the hot grease distributes the heat
    more evenly. I first noticed this upon cooking a 2nd lb of bacon in the first
    lb's drippings. And yes, low and slow is better. No burned spots.

    And tastier.

    I'd throw the whole pound into a large pan on relatively low heat and
    as it softens separate the slices and keep cooking on low heat and
    turning slices until they're done to your liking. It's stupid to cook
    bacon on high, then it cooks unevenly and there's a lot more
    shrinkage. When bacon is cooking properly it should just barely
    sizzle... takes a little longer and needs to be tended but you didn't
    waste your bacon money. If bacon spatters all over the stove it
    simply means you can't cook.

    Yes, immediately cooking the second batch in the bacon fat from the
    first batch is fine, but I don't suggest cooking fresh bacon in old
    saved bacon grease, then your fresh bacon will taste like old bacon.
    Cooked on low heat bacon will render out fat fast enough. I don't see
    the point to saving old bacon fat unless you are dirt poor with a
    depression mentality... if what one wants is to cook a dish with true
    bacon flavor start with a couple strips of fresh bacon, cooking
    something in old saved bacon fat is TIAD... how would you like to pay
    for an oil change for your car and find out they gave you the old oil
    from the last car they drained, older than what you had... and don't
    think it's not done. Restaurants serve old saved food too, they don't
    thow anything away if there's a chance they can stick it to the
    customer... WTF do you think soup du jour and daily specials is. Never
    eat out on Monday, that's when they serve the weekend's LOs, Tuesday
    is trash pick up.

    When all you do is throw stuff in the microwave that is most definitely
    true.

    Mreeeyyyyyyyyooooooooooooowwwwwwww!

    I suppose no one should criticize you for refusing to quote messages in your
    replies, nor care that it sends an obvious message of disrespect for the
    group. Indeed you have the right to carelessly screw it up every time you
    post.
