There's also the problem of hot spots in your skillet. No matter how fancy and expensive the pan we're using, we find that we need to occasionally scoot the slices around to make sure the middles of the slices don't cook too quickly.
All of this is best accomplished if you keep your heat on medium, even low-medium. The bacon will cook more evenly, and you have time to keep an eye on it and flip it before it burns. Because there's nothing worse than having your L and T ready to go, only to have to start all over with the B.
How do you cook your bacon? Do you go slow in a skillet or microwave it?
