Reheating Bacon

hungry100 Dec 9, 2008 12:34 PM

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

    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.

      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.

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

        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.
