Bacon, bacon, bacon. There is just something about this awesome food that brings a tear to my eye.

In the Microwave

The microwave is a really quick option that will have the bacon reheated in no time.


  • Place bacon in a microwave safe plate.
  • Cover with a paper towel.

  • Once it is fully reheated, take out and enjoy.

In the Oven
