Have you ever tried frying bacon and then chopping it to bits? Do they fly everywhere and make a ginormous mess? Yeah, me too. It’s sort of like trying to cut a thin crust pizza that’s got a super crunchy edge. I still have yet to find a solution to that frustration.
As for bacon, try this next time. Place your bacon on your cutting board on the napkin or paper towel you used to rest/drain the bacon after if came out of the pan.
Commence chopping with slow, measured movements. Watch those fingers.
And, voila! Easy bacon bits without the mess.
Disclaimer: It’s possible this is a particular trait of the Viva paper towel. It’s very thick and soft and the bacon kind of sticks to the towel and the towel doesn’t break, tear, or cut. I can’t promise all brands will perform this same way.
Heck, give it a try next time and let me know how it goes. 🙂
Of all the lessons in life that I’ve learned the hard way, the ones involving frontal nudity and hot bacon grease seem to be the most enduring.
