Calling all bacon enthusiasts who also happen to dislike complicated cooking processes. Thanks to this video, you can ditch your frying pan when preparing bacon. This easy and relatively mess-free method simply requires a few paper plates, some paper towels, and a microwave oven. He arranges the bacon into these heart-shaped rolls for a few reasons—to prevent bacon drippings from getting all over the microwave, to maximize the space, and to ensure that each strip cooks evenly. He notes that this method works best when the meat is still fairly cold and is cut thicker so that the strips remain upright.
The most appealing aspect of this tutorial, besides the obvious fact that it revolves around bacon, is how little clean-up it involves. Rather than having to scrub bacon grease from a frying pan, you simply need to dispose of a couple paper plates and paper towels. You can even compost them, which greatly reduces the amount of waste produced. I'm also quite fond of the idea of arranging bacon into little hearts, expressing my love of this food.
