Description

Here's the bacon so good it's won national acclaim from The New York Times, Chicago Tribune, Wine Spectator Magazine and was named Gold Award Winner in the Specialty Food Association's national competition an unprecedented four times.  


You can actually see how lean Nueske's Smoked Bacon is...and you'll be amazed at how little it shrinks. Its taste is unforgettable, too, because we smoke it over glowing Applewood embers for 24 hours to give it that rich, smoky Nueske's flavor. Comes medium- or thin-sliced in handy vacuum-sealed 1 lb. packages.
 

Store & Prepare

To Store: Refrigerate immediately. Vacuum-packaged bacon will keep for 12 weeks in refrigerator, or up to 1 year in freezer. Once opened, use within 1 week.

To Fry: For best results, place bacon in unheated skillet. Cook over MEDIUM LOW heat. Turn frequently until desired crispness is attained. (You'll notice less shrinkage than with other brands.)

Microwave: On microwave-safe plate, place bacon slices side by side between layers of paper toweling. Cook on HIGH for the following approximate times:

Thick Slice
2 slices - 2 minutes
4 slices - 3 minutes
6 slices - 4 minutes

Thin Slice
2 slices - 1 minutes
4 slices - 2 minutes
6 slices - 3 minutes

Oven-Baked: Preheat oven to 350°F.  Place slices close together on rimmed baking sheet (rim prevents grease from dripping on oven's heating elements).  For easiest cleanup, place parchment paper on sheet prior to placing bacon (make sure paper doesn't hang over edges of baking sheet).  Bake 20 minutes or until desired doneness; no need to turn bacon during cooking.  Place bacon on paper toweling to drain.

Very fatty bacon in recent order

 

For years I've been a fan and promoter of Nueske's applewood smoked bacon. In a recent order 3 of the 5 pounds of bacon were extremely fatty. The grease rendered from cooking was abundant. I was able to give the 2 leaner packages as gifts, holding back the fatty ones. I am now reluctant to order again. I had previously given 5 stars to Nueske's bacon, but this latest fatty shipment really disappointed.

I ordered Applewood Smoked Bacon after hearing a lot of praise about it on the radio. I was rather surprised to find that it is rather thin and so so tasting. Not any better than grocery store bacon. Much more expensive though.
