Speaking of Bacon

Bacon Day!!! Got about 3 lbs package of bacon ends and pieces. Spent this morning cooking them in the oven, so we could have bacon fat in the crock and bacon pieces in the freezer, ready for whenever we need bacon.

It was delicious in a butty (UK thing, heavily buttered toast and bacon).

Will definitely be buying that brand again.

Spousal Unit just made a club salad. Instead of turkey, which I'm not fond of, we're substituting bacon. Yum.

I cut off the fatty end and keep for seasoning beans or green beans. Then bake the rest and freeze and just take out the number of pieces I want and zap them in the micro wave. The bacon fat goes into the fridge or freezer to use for frying eggs or potatoes or chicken.

Yep I like the Wright's thick cut too. I'll cut off the fatty ends on half of the slices for seasoning purposes. Bacon sandwiches need those slices cut in half before I cook them. Makes them fit on the bread better.

The uncut slices I use to wrap around pork roasts or to make pig candy (grandkids' favorite).

Or if I can find smoked ham hocks I'll season with that instead. Makes some slamming bean soup we eat regularly (No musical fruit jokes please. We soak the beans to avoid that).

There's a meat market about 30 minutes from us that I've been visiting and they'll custom cut bacon to the degree of thickness I like which is a little thicker than Wright's thick cut.

You can’t go wrong with bacon. Which brand did you get? Sounds as though your prep was a solid idea.
