We call the Golden Corral the Golden Trough.
It's like the Western Sizzlin, Ryan's, etc.

Bacon...I need bacon. Must have bacon. Maybe I can talk my mom into going to the IHOP with me tomorrow, so I can get pancakes and BACON.

I microwave mine--you can get it really dry and crispy that way.

I eat it in moderation. Not every day, but on the weekends when I make breakfast, you can be sure it will involve bacon. I even have some stockpiled in the freezer to ensure that I don't run out.

Me, too. I usually don't microwave it, mainly because I had a very old one until recently that didn't cook it evenly. Now I need to get some sort of bacon rack/tray to try out. If cooking a lot at a time, I like to do it in the oven on my broiler pan so it drains as much fat as possible as it cooks and gets it good and crispy.

I'll be baking 2 pounds of it for dinner tonight, to have a bacon/eggs dinner. I use a broiler pan to bake it, so the grease drips away.

Don't they have chocolate covered bacon at the Minnesota State Fair? I vaguely remember something during the RNC coverage about it (they were occuring at hte same time).

Also I made Dark Chocolate Bacon cupcakes once. They were AMAZING. So good. It's really the best of both worlds, salty and sweet.

And I agree, soft bacon is best!

We ate it ALL! The bacon turned out really well in the oven. Easy clean up too, just put the broiler pan in the dishwasher, no messy stove to clean up.

I love doing the bacon in the oven or microwave. No mess, no fuss, but still very good.

When I just want a couple of strips for a sandwich or something I nuke it. It works well.

Last Thursday I drove 4 hours round trip to go pick up some bacon, ham, ribs, sausage and other goodies. Spent well over $100 for the gas and meat.

This is the best stuff ever, it's a small meat locker that also brines and smokes the meat. The bacon is very thick cut and it's like cooking ham, no to very little fat. The meat is local "organic" if you want to call it that. We can't eat that store bought crap now, we're spoiled forever now.

I do this as well. I absolutely LOVE bacon. I tend to eat healthy most of the time but feel a little bit guilty when I do eat it. However, this http://www.baconsalt.com/ is a tasty alternative. Well not alternative, but I don't feel so guilty as when I consume it as actual bacon. It may sound weird, but it's really good on french fries, corn and even spinach
