Pre-Cooked Microwave Bacon

September 15, 2008 12:01 pm Published by 5 Comments

Today we decided to try out a quick and easy alternative to cooking traditional bacon. For our experiment we selected Safeway brand “Thick Sliced Fully Cooked Bacon”.

The packaging was decent and the price was right, on sale for $2.00 for a pack of 12 slices.

The box claimed 12 bacon slices and “ready in seconds”. Recommended microwave cooking time was 40 seconds on the back of the box.

Once removed from the box, the inner packaging showed a glob of bacon that honestly didn’t look all that appetizing.

After removing the bacon from the plastic bag and separating the slices, things started looking better. There were 12 slices as advertised, but the slices were extremely thin. Definitely not “thick sliced” as advertised.

The bacon was heated in the microwave for 40 seconds directly on the plate. The texture was rather flimsy but the taste was pretty decent. Not bad for $2.00 and 40 seconds. I’d recommend pre-cooked microwave bacon as a quick alternative for you time-saving bacon lovers out there.
