Bacon

Look, the bacon packaging makes no sense. Terrible cooking UX.

Here's how I minimize stress:

1) Get a week's worth of bacon

3 packs of unopened bacon

2) Cut all of it in half

same packs, but cut down the middle

3) Put it in a big zip-loc bag, in the fridge

same cut packs, all crammed in a big plastic bag

4) Pull out 1/2 pack whenever you need bacon (works great for a family of 4)

A stove, with a pan of small sizzling bacon strips

Advantages

  • It's so easy to pull out of the bag, and doesn't pull or stretch.
  • You only touch raw meat with 1 hand.
  • The half-strips actually fit in the pan.
