My husband turned 35 today. We’ve been married for 10 years and have 2 amazing sons. I am so grateful.
For his birthday breakfast, I served him farm-fresh uncured bacon & eggs with hash browned potatoes. (Yes, I made him break the Orthodox Nativity Fast to do it, but it’s only your birthday once a year!)
In honor of the day, I decided to share my single-serving bacon secrets with you all.
Ever wondered what to do with the uncured bacon you didn’t use? Particularly if you only needed a slice or two for your baked potato, your bacon cheeseburger, your hand-snapped green beans, or some other tasty dish?
You could keep it in the fridge and cook with it later in the week. But, what if you don’t want to eat bacon later that week? And, what if you’re like many frugal Real Food loving cooks and buy your bacon in bulk from a nearby pig farmer? What do you do with your bacon then?
The answer is simple!
You flash freeze it. Here’s how.
Layer a baking sheet with wax paper or foil.
Once all your sliced bacon has been layered, put the baking sheet in your freezer.
Now, you have single-serving bacon slices to use whenever you want! You can easily take out just one slice, four slices, or a dozen slices to use as needed.
