Bacon Shopping Tip

Look for center cut bacon which comes from a leaner part of the belly - you'll get more meat and less fat.

Bacon Cooking Tip

Cook bacon over medium to medium-low heat to prevent it from burning, and occasionally pour off the fat. You can save it for later use as a cooking oil.
