We like our bacon cooked in the microwave. I usually use about 5 paper plates to cook a pack of bacon. There are about 15 slices of bacon in a pack and I place 5 pieces on each paper plate. I cover the plate with another plate and place in the microwave. I cook for 2 min. and then drain the grease. I then flip the bacon and return the covered plate to the microwave. I cook the bacon for 1 min. and then remove the plate. I flip and separate the bacon pieces. If the bacon is getting close to being done, I will then cook for 30 sec., 20 sec. or 10 sec. You do not want to overcook the bacon.
I know those of you who are waiting on a homegrown tomato cannot wait to have a BLT sandwich. It won't be long now. We have tomato blooms and tiny tomatoes on the tomato plants. Did I mention that Phillip has planted 65 tomato plants? We will be sharing a lot of tomatoes this summer!
