  • 6 slices thick slice bacon (such as hormel black label 'thick slice')
  • 3 white paper towels


  1. On a microwave-safe dish (such as a Corelle dinner plate/or 8 x 10-inch Pyrex glass baking dish), lay down 2 sheets (double layer) white paper towels. Place 6 thick slices bacon on the paper towels (not overlapping each other). Cover the bacon slices with 1 sheet of white paper towel.
  2. Microwave on high for 5 to 6* minutes.
  3. Rotate dish and microwave on high for about 5 to 6* minutes more (*note: microwave ovens vary, so cooking times may vary; time is for my microwave), or until done to your liking (I like mine crisp). Be careful not to burn the bacon.
  4. Remove from microwave. Your bacon is ready!
  5. NOTE: You can use regular slice bacon as well, just reduce cooking time by a minute or two.
