For most folks, thick- or thin- sliced is a personal choice. Then there are others (perhaps you!) who want to slice their own bacon extra-thick, extra-thin, or in between. Now, with Nueske's Applewood Smoked Slab Bacon, you can slice your bacon to meet your family's preference.
Slab bacon is the same premium quality as our popular sliced bacons... made from the leanest pork available, and slowly smoked 24 hours over sweet Applewood embers.
Another sign of superior quality: It shrinks a fraction as much as typical supermarket bacon. Conveniently portioned in two or four 1.5 lb. slabs.
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:
2 slices - 2 minute
4 slices - 4 minutes
6 slices - 6 minutes
Thin bacon slices require slightly less time.
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.
