Freezing Bacon Strips

If you want to freeze bacon without it sticking together in a clump, roll each piece from one end to the other like a jellyroll. Place each rolled piece, side by side, and lay flat in ziplock bag in freezer. When you need bacon, take out the number of pieces needed, and thaw them in the microwave.

We lay them across the clingwrap, and roll, one at a time, so each piece is individually wrapped, but all into one big roll. Less freezer space taken up than rolling each one individually, and easier to defrost too. From the end, the whole roll looks like one big jelly roll :-)
Probably uses up a meter or so of cling wrap each time we buy a kilo of bacon.

Depending on how you use bacon, you can also put two or more rashers of bacon on each part of the cling wrap before you roll it - this should at least halve the amount of wrap used.

We generally split a pound of bacon into quarters and just wiggle the slices into snack-sized Ziploc bags, stored then within a larger Ziploc. Our local grocery store tends to put bacon on Buy One Get One Free often, so this works for us.
