To get really crispy bacon, you can deep fry it! The oil needs to be kept in a different container than your regular frying oil. You can use it to make your hush puppies taste better, though.
You can also get really crispy bacon with less mess and work, by putting it in the oven on a baking sheet. It comes out nice and flat and crispy as can be. If you put parchment paper down first, the paper absorbs most of the grease for easier cleanup.
