My son came home from a meeting with one of his clients this evening and told me that they gave him a dozen eggs from their own chickens. He said that they have a small farm and the chickens are free range. He said he didn’t think we needed any eggs but decided to accept them. So we had breakfast for dinner tonight – scrambled eggs and bacon. We use the Oscar Meyer low sodium bacon and cook it in the microwave oven. One minute per slice of bacon and it comes out exactly perfect – not too limp, not too crisp.
Ever since we switched to low-sodium bacon we don’t order bacon at restaurants anymore; their bacon is so salty that it actually is hard to eat! We’ve tried other brands of low sodium bacon, but we’ve had a lot of trouble getting the other brands to cook up the right way in the microwave. What I like about cooking it in the microwave is that we layer the bacon in between several layers of microwave safe white paper towels, and the paper towels soak up the grease. That makes cleaning up a snap, and I really appreciate that!
