Bacon cooked in George
Dear husband and I only eat breakfast together on Saturday mornings as he goes to work really early during the week. I usually cook eggs and bacon. I always grill the bacon in the griller in the stove and now just have a small piece myself with the rind cut off. He, on the other hand, loves the crispy crunchy rind and eats lots of it. Today I decided to grill the bacon in George. The bacon was delicious and as the rind was softer dear husband cut it off and didn't eat it. I thought it would be the last time I would be able to cook bacon more healthily, but he actually liked the flavour better and said maybe he shouldn't really be eating the rind anyway it is too fattening! I can't believe it! I will be able to buy rindless, less fatty bacon. I have always had to make a point of not mentioning that things may be healthy or lower in fat than we used to eat. I think he is actually getting slowly converted!! (Shhhhhh! Don't tell him).
