Ah, bacon. Who doesn’t love to eat bacon. My family loves it. We go through at least three packages of nitrate-free bacon each week – eating it for breakfast, packing it in my kids lunch box, or even just as an after school snack that’s packed with protein.
The only drawback with bacon is cooking it. At least it used to be for me. Cooking bacon in a skillet over the stove usually resulted in oil splatters everywhere and me getting burned.
I’ve got a super easy way to cook bacon perfectly without the mess and you can even cook in bulk without adding extra time. Try it with this delicious Gluten-Free Egg Quiche or these other 50+ Healthy Grain Free and Gluten Free Breakfast Recipes.
