Here's the bacon so good it's won national acclaim from The New York Times, Chicago Tribune and Cuisine Magazine and been named Gold Award Winner in the Specialty Food Association's national competition an unprecedented four of the last seven years.
You can actually see how lean Nueske's Bacon is...and you'll be amazed at how little it shrinks in your skillet. Its taste is unforgettable, too, because we smoke it a full 24 hours over glowing Applewood embers to give it that signature, smoky Nueske's flavor. Comes vacuum sealed, medium- or thin-sliced in handy 1 lb. packages.
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 minutes
4 slices - 3 minutes
6 slices - 4 minutes
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.
