Henderson’s Bacon Cooking Tips 

Frying Bacon 

When frying our bacon, it's important to keep a close eye on it and turn it often. It does not contain any added water and as such will cook faster than bacon containing added water and chemicals. Older bacon will cook almost twice as quickly as fresh bacon so keep an even closer eye on it when its cooking.  

Crispy Bacon

If you prefer very crispy bacon, choose thinner slices, our streaky bacon is ideal to fry up. Pour or baste off the fat as it accumulates in the pan. Use medium to medium-low heat. Cook slowly, turning often, to render out the most fat and help reduce shrinkage. Pricking with a fork will help alleviate any curling problems. Drain  bacon on paper towels.  

Bacon Fat

The fat rendered from the cooked Henderson’s bacon is highly-prized as a cooking oil for its flavor. After cooking the bacon, cool the rendered oil to room temperature and then pour through a fine sieve into a glass container. Cover and store in the refrigerator or freezer for future use.

Oven Cooking 

Bacon can also be easily baked in the oven, resulting in amazingly flat slices. This is our chef, Jimmy Boswell’s preferred method. Preheat oven to 185 degrees C. Place a rack inside a baking tray. Lay out slices and bake for 10 to 15 minutes, depending on desired doneness level. Crispy bacon with no curls.
