The Best Way to Cook Bacon

.Bacon 101  From Food Network  Cooking Methods Below- 
The Classic Method: In a Skillet
This tried-and-true method is the obvious choice when you need to cook 6 to 8 slices at a time.
1. Pull out the bacon from the fridge 15 to 20 minutes before cooking. At room temperature, bacon just cooks up better (just like steak).
2. Don’t preheat the skillet. Lay out the bacon strips without overlapping in a cold pan. This helps the fat render slowly, for consistently cooked strips.
3. Cook over medium heat — again, good for even rendering. Turn the strips as needed until they reach the desired crispness, 8 to 12 minutes.
4. Drain well on a paper-towel-lined platter.

For Feeding a Crowd: In the Oven
Make this your go-to method when you need bacon for a big group and don’t want to bother making multiple batches. Plus, there’s no turning and cleanup is simple.
1. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil or parchment paper, and lay out as many bacon strips as will fit snuggly without overlapping.
2. Place in a cold oven. Then heat the oven to 400 degrees F and bake to desired crispness, 25 to 35 minutes.
3. Drain well on a paper-towel-lined platter.

For Just a Few Strips: In the Microwave
When you need only a few pieces of bacon for a burger or BLT, this is a quick and easy way to go.
1. Line a microwave-safe plate with 2 layers of paper towels.
2. Lay out the bacon strips without overlapping. Cover with 2 more paper towels.
3. Cook in the microwave on high to desired crispness, 4 to 6 minutes. Since the strips cook on paper towels, no draining is necessary.
