Emily asks: How do you cook bacon at home?

I hope most people are aware there is the option to buy all-natural nitrite-free bacon. Hormel sells this kind as well as other brands. Look for it at Whole Foods, Mothers, even Ralphs. Ralphs recently had a sale for Hormel nitrite-free unprocessed bacon $2.99 each as opposed to $7.99. It's worth the extra change for your health, which is priceless!!

I have an iron skilled with ridges...the bacon fat drains into the channels...however I use the drippings to make potato soup and eat the bacon for breakfast.

While crispy bacon may have less fat, it is also higher in nitrites, softer bacon is better for you in the long run, a little extra fat is preferable to compounds such as nitrites.
