A New Gadget
I have a new favorite kitchen gadget....it's a microwave bacon rack, purchased at Walmart.
Now before you say anything, I know most of you probably have had one of these for years, but I seem to try out gadgets a little later than most people.
Anyway, I love bacon (I know that's not a good thing) and have always stood over a hot skillet frying and turning for what seemed forever--grease popping everywhere, especially on me. Then after the bacon was cooked and consumed, I would have the unhappy job of cleaning the stove and pans. What a greasy mess!!
A couple of weeks ago I decided to buy a microwavable bacon rack and try it out. I couldn't believe the bacon would be as delicious as that fried in a skillet, but to my surprise, not only was it as good, but it was so much easier and faster. Now I'm hooked for good. I even went back to Walmart and bought two more. I figure having several will save time when we have company for breakfast.
Now it's so convenient to take a few slices out of the package, place them on the tray, cover them with a paper towel, pop them in the microwave for three minutes and have my bacon! I will never be able to live without my microwave rack.
