I hate to cook bacon. Even if I use the oven method and don’t have to stand over the skillet with it popping and sizzling. There’s just something about the process that I don’t like.
A few weeks ago, I made a recipe that called for diced bacon and onion. The recipe only required a few pieces of bacon, but I decided to cook up the whole pound.
Unfortunately, the recipe I was cooking the bacon for wasn’t very good. But it did turn out to be useful to cook and freeze the bacon and onion.
I froze it in zip top baggies, in about 1/2 cup quantities. I placed all the baggies inside a gallon size freezer bag to protect it and keep it organized.
Tomorrow I’ll share a soup recipe that uses the bacon and onion. If you’ve got that frozen, the soup can be finished quicker than you can make a grilled cheese sandwich.
