Have you ever tasted the perfect slice of bacon? We’re talking about that slightly-crispy-on-the-edges-but-the-fat-just-melts-in-your-mouth strip of bacon. We’ve all had that at some point but the better question is: What does a flawless strip of bacon really look like? How does it make you feel? Well, we’re here to answer those questions for you.
When you see the perfect slice of bacon, you will instantly be able to tell that it is, indeed, perfect. There will be no question about it. Not many know how to cook it.
