I read a post on here that said adding something to the bacon brine will keep it from curling so much when frying. I can’t remember what it was though. Maybe sodium phosphate? Anyone know?

LOL Here I thought "curling" was a typo and funny enough and then saw sodium prostrate... :emoji_laughing:

Wife bakes ours. She flips a few times and rests on paper towels. Perfectly flat. BLT's last night in fact.

My wife cooks our bacon on a cookie sheet in the oven. She puts a sheet of foil on the cookie sheet for easy clean up and into the oven @ 420 deg. Cook it to your liking (soft to crispy) but it doesn't curl?

I'm not going to touch the sodium prostate discussion :emoji_laughing:

That is how I cook my bacon these days, except at 375. Lots easier to clean up and get nice straight pieces.

Hahaha wow got to love spell check, and that fact that it’s a real thing makes it even better. The word I was looking for was phosphate but obviously I failed spelling in elementary. Glad i could entertain everyone on this fine friday lol

"adding someone to the bacon brine" ????? Wow, that's got to be one big pot!!!

Seriously when I cook bacon on my kettle it doesn't curl nearly as much as frying.

You ought to get her a blanket !!
After flipping a few times, resting on Paper towels can't be very comfortable.
