Use Cast Iron Skillet for Inexpensive Bacon Press

Most bacon presses can run anywhere from $10 all the way up to $20 and $30. P>A much cheaper and just as effective option is a cast iron skillet. Cut long bacon slices in half and lay them in a large skillet.


Place a smaller cast iron skillet (one that will sit comfortably in the larger skillet) on top of bacon as a "press".

The weight of the cast iron creates a perfectly flat piece of bacon with no curling whatsoever!
