I was trying to make BLT sandwiches for dinner. And everything started out normal… As instructed by the bacon package, I was laying strips of bacon onto a cool pan, then heating it over medium heat. After a while, the sizzling started.
Once those strips of bacon were done, it was time to lay the new strips down (I was cooking the whole package). So I set the cooked pieces aside and carefully placed an uncooked piece in the pan.
Then all hell broke loose. And here is where I ask you: WHAT is the deal with bacon?? Once the uncooked piece hit the pan, all the hot grease started snapping, popping and exploding like crazy – flying everywhere.
Maybe the pan was too hot; maybe this is just what bacon does—I don’t know. I’m a horrible cook. In fact, this incident brought back flashes of the time I tried to fry a dozen chicken drumsticks. It was disastrous, and halfway through the whole ordeal it dawned on me that I don’t even like drumsticks! And neither does my husband! What was I doing??
Anyway, back to the bacon. Things were going haywire in the kitchen, so I basically just made a run for it.
