Step 2 Buy Bacon
Get the good stuff. I don't have a butcher nearby but the organic market down the street came through. Thick cut. All natural. No antibiotics. No added Hormones. All Vegetarian feed. No Preservatives. MMMMMMM. Happy pigs make happy bacon.

Step 4 Warm Pan
Put a little oil in the pan so they don't stick and warm the pan on medium heat. Wait till it is hot to put the bacon in.

Do the first flip when the bacon is starting to get brown on the pan side.

Step 7 Flip Bacon
Don't just flip. You must rotate to ensure maximum cookage.

Step 8 Be the Bacon
You must employ all 5 senses to achieve bacon nirvana. Ignore your personal ego. It's all about the bacon.

Step 9 Flip Again
When the edges start to get crispy it's time to flip the bacon again.

Step 10 Perfect Bacon
I like the whole range of bacon. A little crispy on the edges, mostly crunchy, a little soft on the wrinkles.

If you want awesome bacon try cooking it on a cookie sheet in the oven and then to get that extra crisp finish it in the broiler for a sec or two.
