I was recently having a debate with a friend at uni that lasted a fair few minutes longer than it should have done about what the best way to cook bacon is. I am adamant that frying is the way forward, she is insistent it's putting bacon under the grill/in the oven. I can see the pros and cons of both. Grill/Oven: Pros: Often crispier No mess You can cook several pieces at once if you're hosting, or making BellMuffins™ Cons:Takes 20 minutes You don't get as much of the beautiful bacon smell. Frying: Pros: Takes little longer than 5 minutes That amazing smell <3 You can cook fried tomatoes in the bacon juice Cons: You have a frying pan and spatula to wash I love frying bacon. If I had to cook a lot of bacon then yes, I would use the grill but I'd hate myself for doing so. What do you do?
