  2. So ... I bought a new flat griddle pan for the stove top, and made a small batch of bacon for breakfast yesterday. The new pan has a ceramic non-stick coating (new to me) rather than teflon. The instructions said to use a light coat of vegetable oil rather than non-stick spray, and I did. I soon realized that I need to level my stove, because I had migrating bacon. It would start on one side of the pan and then migrate to the other by the sizzling action. I'd put them back and sure enough migration commenced again. I had not encountered that before. The pan was definitely "non-stick". The task seemed somewhat Sisyphean, but soon enough the bacon finished cooking and all was well. It was awesome as usual. The down side to using a stove top griddle is that the bacon oils splatter further than if the bacon is cooked in a frying pan with taller sides. So a little bit of extra clean up is required. (number of times the word "bacon" appears in this post = six, including the one in quotes)

  4. Well, usually it's somewhat easy to save some when we just have sammiches for breakfast. Believe it or not, you CAN have too much bacon on a sandwich. So there's always some left. HOWEVER... I like your idea much betterer. I'll just have two sandwiches.
  5. The article linked in the OP mentions them ... and I think they're an ingenious idea (i.e., "brilliant" in the UK). There are a few stores that do that here in the US, and homeless or other less-well-off people are known to fetch carts left in the parking lot by the original "renters" that couldn't be bothered to turn them in for their deposits. Lazy people pay a self-imposed tax, the unfortunates earn a small windfall (cynically ... maybe enough to buy a small cheeseburger off the dollar menu), and the stores save money by not having to hire cart fetchers at minimum wage.
  6. Most carts (or Shopping Trolleys, as they are known in most civilised countries), in the UK have a deposit system. You insert a pound coin to release it from the one in front, and you get that pound back when you return it.
  7. I watched a BBC documentary last Sunday on Extinction. There are theories from people who know about such things that point to HIV, SARS and now possibly Covid-19 originating from species brought out into the open due to their natural habitats being destroyed by us. Another delicious irony. https://gtr.ukri.org/projects?ref=G0902430

  12. /giggles ... "save some for burgers tomorrow night." Right, like that'll happen. You must have mighty will power. I'd just make more for the burgers, but that's just me.

  14. Oh no! You're letting me down. Do we HAVE to wait till the weekend??? I'm gonna fry some up in the morning and make breakfast sammiches, and save some for burgers tomorrow night. Weekend schmeekend. Seems like a good time for one of my favorite TV quotes. From Supernatural, Dean - "If bacon is what kills me, I Win."

  16. You bet! I predict bacon will appear on this weekend's menu in one form or another.
  17. In a pan, on a burner, low and slow, like you said. All other methods should be illegal. #cancelovenbacon! Now I hungry too. Thanks buddy.

  19. I read a lot of stuff because I don't watch TV. Some of it is boring, but some of it interesting. And some, like this latest article about making bacon just makes me hungry. According to the article author, my preferred method (non-stick pan) only rates a 6/10. I do note the author did not give out any 9s ... not to mention the subject itself is hyper-subjective ... so she's simply wrong. I've never heard of some of the methods she uses, and I've tried others but I like the compromise of speed and quality from my method. I could cook the bacon slower in the oven but let's be real ... the point of cooking it is to eat it, and the sooner you can eat it, the better things are, amiright? On the other hand, I've made microwave bacon, and I can attest to the finickiness of timing depending on the water content of the bacon slices in question. It's just not worth the risk of destroying a succulent piece or two of precious bacon by microwaving it. My method, as quirky as it is, works well by producing cooked slices that are crispy on the outside and meaty-chewy on the inside. My wife doesn't like me to deodorize the house with bacon smoke, so I found that if I cook it low and slow the temperature doesn't get above the smoking point of the fats and oils. I usually spray a square non-stick griddle pan with cooking spray (yeah, doubling up on the non-stick protection) which causes the bacon to not cling to the non-stick pan coating. And a low temperature tends to render the fat from the slices so they fry and crisp in their own juice. With the right cut, the slices don't curl ... much. I flip each slice no more than twice. The slices are pulled from the pan when they just start to begin foaming (those of you who've fried bacon in a pan should be able to recognize when this is). And cleanup is a breeze. I usually put the cooked bacon slices on a plate with paper towels, and them pat them down from the top with another set of paper towels. After patting down the cooked slices, I send the top layer of paper towels to the pan to soak up the fats and oils, then simply toss it in the trash when it cools. *tummy grumbles* ... /sigh ... I want a BLT for some reason ... So ... how do you prefer to make your bacon (or have your bacon made)?
  20. My bad. I read Lasraik's response as two sentences ... one not necessarily following the other. My kid worked at a large combined supermarket+retail store, and he said getting assigned to fetch carts from the parking lot (especially when it was -40° outside) was punishment for being caught doing nothing (or as Prince would say, "pretty close to nothing") ... and there were always plenty of kids to get assigned to fetch carts. So in essence, it was negative reinforcement used to promote a stronger work ethic.
  21. Me either. Ironically, my LGS died during Ravnica Allegiance, 1 set before the alleged boom. I haven't purchased paper cards since.
