Bacon frying in ban with a wadded up paper towel and little grease.When you cook bacon on the stove, you can stop the splatter of grease on your stove and your hands and arms by putting a wadded up paper towel in the pan with the cooking bacon. The paper towel will absorb the excess grease as the bacon cooks. Add a second towel if you need to. When the bacon is cooked and the pan and the grease cooled; remove the towel and throw it away. I have been doing this for many years, and it never fails.

For perfectly crisp bacon that doesn't make a huge splattering mess in your kitchen, add a tablespoon of water to your pan after placing the bacon inside. The water will render the fat, keeping splashes at bay, while the heat continues to crisp your bacon well after all the water has evaporated.

I keep a shaker, with large holes, filled with flour beside my stove. When I'm frying bacon, I sift some on the bacon in the pan.


The bacon does not swivel up or spatter as much when frying. The bacon goes farther because it lies flat.

This is a foolproof way to cook a lot of bacon without splattering it all over cooking surfaces.

Take a piece of bacon (not frozen) and dip it into flour, coating both sides, then fry as usual. Flour gives it more body and makes a beautiful crust.


An added bonus is that the grease doesn't pop when frying, and shrinkage is less.
