Life Hack: How To Cook Crispy Bacon In The Microwave

There's nothing quite like munching a bacon butty in bed on a Sunday morning.

For those who like their bacon super crispy, we've got an awesome life hack that will shave the amount of time it takes to create your breakfast. And all you require is a microwave.

For this life hack you will need a bowl, microwave and some tasty rashers of bacon.

  • Tip your bowl upside down and drape your rashers over it. (To reduce mess, place the upside down bowl on a plate so the bacon fat has something to drip onto and cover the rashers with kitchen towel to stop it from splattering all over your microwave.)
  • Pop the bacon-covered bowl in the microwave and turn it on high.
  • Keep it in there for between 1-3 minutes, depending on how powerful your microwave is.
  • Keeping checking on your bacon as it cooks and take it out when it has reached your required level of crispiness.

Et voilà. Breakfast is served...

Remove fat from a casserole or sauce with an ice cube...
