  • 8 oz bacon (1 package, 8 slices)


  • Place two paper towels on a dinner plate. 
  • Arrange four slices of bacon on the paper towels, not touching each other. 
  • Place two more paper towels on top of the bacon slices. 
  • Microwave on high until crispy. In my microwave, this takes 4 minutes.  However, microwave ovens greatly vary, so check after 3 minutes. You can always add 1 more minute if needed. 
  • Remove the plate carefully from the microwave. It will be very hot. Repeat with the four remaining bacon slices.
