I looked at a bunch of recipes for baked bacon and I ran across 2 different methods .. not sure which one to try - both were identical except one called for starting it in a cold oven with the temp set at 400 degrees and the other called for preheating the oven to 400 degrees. Here are the instructions:

Bake Bacon

You need: baking pan with rack that fits inside, aluminum foil.
--Put rack inside foil-lined pan.
--Arrange bacon strips in single layer on rack.
--Place pan in cold oven, and set to heat to 400 degrees.
--Bake for 15-30 minutes, until desired crispness. Cooking time will vary depending on thickness of bacon. Watch carefully after 15 minutes; it can burn quickly toward the end of cooking time.
--If desired, when the bacon begins to brown, add an optional flavor from the ingredients list. (Adding them at the beginning may result in burning.) Return to oven until bacon is desired doneness.
--Once finished baking, bacon may be kept warm in 200 degree oven for up to 30 minutes.
--Refrigerate or freeze leftover strips or crumbled bacon.
--Reheat by wrapping in paper towel and heating in microwave for 20-30 seconds.

I didn't go by a recipe I just winged it. it was an off the cuff idea, the oven was preheated and I think it was at 400 cause I originally was doing frozen pizzas for my kids and it was an afterthought. It was delicious though.

Cathy, I bread mine in 2 parts flour and 1 part cornmeal, or there about. Never tried pancake batter on squas before but it sounds great. To make and extra light and fluffy cake of cornmeal I mix pancake mix in with it. 3 parts corn meal to 1 part pancake mix. My fav is yellow squash but zucchini is good too. Artichoke hearts fixed the same ways are amazing. I cheat and use canned on the artichoke hearts, cant afford fresh and I can't say how fresh ones would fry up. Making myself hungry, lol.

You can sometimes down here. I love fried saurkraut. Add some weinies to it, yum.
Most people I know grow their own tomatoes so there is always a supply handy.

I have tried this method of planting and found it to work very well. The beans growing on the corn stalks does not injure the corn and the squash covering the ground keeps more moisture to the plants and the deer do not eat the corn because they do not like to get their legs tangled up in the vines.

I wish they sold them green near me. I grow them too but there's a short supply this time of year lol. Except for maybe canned ones? I dunno if that would work though? Anyway I don't can (I can but I don't - except pickles) so it wouln't matter.


RE: What kind is best - I've never considered it. We buy a few types I cannot remember the name of and just fry up whatever does not ripen (or what is big enough when the taste hits lol). I know the 'stay green' types that don't redden are not good as fryers and taste disgusting.

ETA - Remembered some I have tried. Beefsteak was good but I didn't like it when it ripened. Better Boy was so-so fried but good ripe. Oxheart was good both ways. And Plum was good fried (meaty too) but was only
good ripened as some sort of puree/sauce.
