Kraft Kitchen Tips!
How to Cook Bacon
Place bacon in single layer in large skillet, just barely overlapping slices. Cook on medium heat until lightly browned on one side; turn with tongs. Continue to cook until bacon is crisp, turning frequently. (A tip to check for doneness is when white, bubbly foam appears over the bacon slices.) Remove bacon from skillet; drain on paper towels.
