Opinions of packaged PRE-COOKED bacon?

greygarious | Jun 23, 2013 10:56 AM

Normally I bake a pound of ordinary bacon at a time, and it keeps for many weeks in the refrigerator. I have tried microwaving bacon to cook it but prefer the crispness of oven-baked. Not timing well, I am out of pre-cooked and a heat wave has begun. I'd like to rely on BLT's for several hot-weather meals, to avoid the stove.

I have never bought the pre-cooked bacon supermarkets sell. (Is it the same as bacon on fast food chain burgers? I find that too jerky-like and salty.) How does the taste and salt level compare to bacon cooked at home? I would be reheating it in the microwave, as I do my own baked bacon when using it for a sandwich. If you like it, what brands do you recommend? I live in the Boston area, if that matters. Thanks.
