How to Freeze Individual Servings of Bacon

We love bacon in our household. So much so that I purchase bacon when it is on sale and freeze the whole package until we need it. This presents a problem when I only need a few strips of bacon for a recipe. What I used to do was defrost the whole package of bacon and eat the rest. Is this a first world problem?

But wouldn't it be nice if you could stretch that package of bacon a little more and freeze them individually?

Here's a neat trick I saw a few years ago online which works well when you only need a few strips of bacon.

IngredientPackage of bacon, fresh

Plastic wrap
Ziploc bag

1. Take bacon out of the package. Roll two slices of bacon together tightly and place on a plate. Repeat.

2. Wrap each bundle of rolled bacon tightly with plastic wrap. Insert into Ziploc bag and squeeze out any air inside the bag. Label and date. Freeze for up to 3 months.

3. When ready to use, thaw out the bacon in the fridge or defrost in the microwave.
