Would You Cook Bacon In The Oven?
What is your favorite way to cook bacon? Now that I have done it cooking bacon in the oven seems easier and cleaner than cooking on the stove top.
Do You Own Cast Iron?
Until recently I had not owned one piece of Cast Iron and never learned to cook with it. When I had a chance to use it my food would stick to the pan, avoiding Cast Iron for most of my life was easy to do.
Not too long ago about two years back, I decided to give Cast Iron another try and ordered two pieces, not the most practical pieces but Cast Iron never the less. What did I get, don’t laugh a Wok & Pizza pan? And guess what I have not been sorry, these cast iron pans have proven very useful. Not only have I used it to cook bacon in the oven, I have also used it to bake bread, make tortillas, cook hash browns, stir-fries and more.
Why The Wok?
Why not, the wok can hold a lot of bacon grease and if needed I can use the pizza pan as a lid for the wok. Would I prefer another piece of Cast Iron to cook the bacon in, not really the Wok works great, the bacon sticks to the sides and the grease rolls down to the bottom of the pan, making it easy to keep it out of the grease if I want to.
How I Cook Bacon In The Oven, In The Wok
It is easy, first set the oven to 350 degrees and let it preheat. Then cut the bacon in half or leave it whole, I think half fits better. Then fill the Wok with the bacon follow the picture above, also I cook extra and save it for later if it fits I cook the whole package. When the oven is hot put the Wok inside and set the timer for 10 minutes, then check the bacon every 10 minutes until the bacon is as cooked as you like it. Harvey likes it extra crunchy, but I prefer a little less.
