Rachel Ray’s Late Night Bacon. Genius.


We, here at Epic Portions, are always looking for great bacon recipes.  Seriously, the more ridiculous the better.  Wrap an oven mitt in bacon.  I’ll probably read about it.  Bacon just adds a level of craziness to any dish that can not be rivaled by any other food.  Today, I am happy to share, I found the craziest, most ridiculous, and fattest bacon recipe I have ever come across.  The sheer letters on my computer screen brought a tear to my eye.  It was like when Columbus stole America from the people who actually found it, only better.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give to you Rachel Ray’s Late Night Bacon.  Be careful re-creating this, or your arteries may explode.

  • Ingredients
    • 8 slices of Bacon.
  • Directions
    • Place 2 sheets of paper towel on a microwave safe plate, lay the bacon out on the paper towel not over lapping the slices. Place 2 more sheets of paper towel on top. Place in the microwave on high for 6 to 13 minutes.

OK.  If you are a little confused about the first paragraph of this post, let me clarify.  I was being sarcastic.  This recipe is actually posted on Food Network’s website AND was on TV.  Don’t believe me?  Click any of the words that are underlined.  That’s called in a link.  That’s right, Food Network dedicated precious air time to Rachel Ray pulling out 8 slices of bacon, placing them on paper towel, then microwaving them for 6-13 minutes.  Then, someone ran to their web designer and said “WE GOTTA HAVE THIS BACON RECIPE ON THE INTERWEBZ!”
