One morning, on our vacation, I heard Danny’s mother say to him: “You’re putting it in the oven?”
They were talking about bacon. She always fries her bacon on the stovetop, on medium heat. (That’s the bacon you see splayed out on paper towels.)
Danny puts bacon on a baking sheet in a 400° oven and lets it cook, unencumbered, until it is just this side of crisp.
It made me think. How do you cook your bacon?
