Reheating Bacon

Hi. I'm bringing bacon to work for our office brunch and am wondering how to cook it at home so I can warm it up at work. I will have access to an oven. Thanks

  1. Does the oven have a broiler? If so, just cook it at home to within a minute of being done and pop it under the broiler to finish cooking it when you open up the refrigerated package at work.

    1. re: todao

      why reheat it? bacon cools in about 60 sec. I say either leave it @ room temp. or tray it up and fire it in your oven @ work.

    2. depending on the number of slices, a 425 oven for about 6-7 minutes or 30 secs or so in the microwave usually works

      1. I'm always in charge of bacon for our annual breakfast potluck. To cook large quantities, I bake it in batches on disposable foil trays. Then put it in a 9x13 baking pan, cover with foil and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, when I'm getting ready for work, I stick the baking pan (still covered) in the over at 400 until I hear the bacon sizzle. Transport to work while still hot and serve immediately.
        Yes, the bacon cools off quickly, but prepared this way it maintains a "just cooked" taste.
