Separate the pieces of bacon and place them flat into a

shallow dish. You will only get half of the bacon into a

9” x 13” dish so use two dishes.

Pour enough Half and Half over the bacon just to cover it.

Refrigerate for a minimum of 30 minutes but not more

than 2 hours. This step helps reduce the bacon from

curling and adds a wonderful flavor.
