Blogger Jillee has tabulated 14 Ways to Cook Bacon.
My favorite remains the oven. Not fast enough for Jillee's family but I it's 15-20 minutes unattended and mess free. I don't use a rack -- the grease drains well enough and contrary to what Jillee suggests, no need to use a rack to keep the bacon from curling. It behaves.
I had to laugh at "in the smoker." Smoked bacon. Hmmmmm. I am firing up that bad boy tomorrow, as it turns out. Will let you know.
I don't know that I would count all these small variants as 14 ways but I am not going to fault her. Any article that says "bacon" 159 times is OK by me.
