Hi, Kristi at the Rada kitchen, and I’ve just found a neat way to make bacon really fast. Maybe you need it for a salad, or you want a piece of bacon on your sandwich at work. All you need is a couple layers of paper towel, and you lay that out on a microwave safe plate. Just make a layer of bacon on the paper towels.

So we’re going to put this in the microwave. This is really thin sliced bacon, so about two and a half, three minutes, thicker bacon you might have to go as long as five minutes.

So our bacon is done that we made in the microwave, and I’m going to use this handy Rada Microwave Mit to remove it from the microwave. It’s a real handy little oven mit. It fits your thumb and your fingers so you can easily grasp that hot plate. And there’s crispy microwave bacon in minutes.
