Ask the Chef: How do you cook bacon?


Dear chef, I cannot cook bacon properly, no matter what I do. It always comes out rubbery or burned. What am I doing wrong? How do you cook bacon?


“Cook bacon in a 400-degree oven for 12-15 minutes. Remove and pat with a dry paper towel. Or heat a skillet to medium-high and place a strip in with a metal bacon/steak weight. Cook for around 3 minutes per side.” — Leslie and Paul Stewart, Palmetto Bay Sunrise Cafe
