Kitchen Tip of the Day - Bacon

I’ve noticed lately that a lot of recipes tend to call for a few strips of bacon.  A little bit of bacon can go a long way in flavoring many different dishes.  As bacon tends to come in 16 oz packages, you either end up with a lot of wasted bacon or else it gets gobbled up by little gremlins (which isn’t exactly the most healthy option.)  Next time, this happens to you, try freezing the leftover.  You can either pre-cook it or leave it raw -- it’s up to you.  Spread out the slices on a baking sheet and place them in the freezer for about an hour or until they’re frozen completely.  Once they’re frozen, you can transfer them to labeled freezer bags.  Next time you a recipe calls for bacon, you can use as much or as little as needed.  No more waste!
