- Turn slices once. Broil to desired crispness.
How To Grill Bacon Steak:

How To Serve Our Bacon
- Gives added flavor to a properly aged filet mignon when wrapped around the steak before broiling.
- Excellent for seasoning in green beans, navy beans, sauerkraut, etc.
- Adds hickory smoked flavor to a crock of baked beans when bacon has been cooked in the beans.
- Place one-half slice of partially fried bacon and a piece of cheese in the center of refrigerated biscuit or dinner roll and bake in the oven for a tasty treat.
- Take a good quality all meat wiener, split it open, place a piece of cheese in the wiener, and wrap a strip of our bacon tightly around the wiener and broil.
- Puts an old fashioned country cured hickory smoked flavor into that popular summer treat, the bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich—BLT.
Dry-cured bacon is cured or preserved by the application of a dry mixture of salt, brown sugar, and pepper to the surface of the meat. To anyone who is familiar with true old-fashioned cured bacon, the resulting taste and flavor of this meat is delicious.
Additionally, this means NO WATER is added during this process. It results in better flavor, a meatier bite, and leaves you with more bacon after cooking.
Dry-cured bacon may be frozen with excellent results according to many of our customers.
