I had you at bacon. This is a pretty simple idea that began with Thomas Keller. It's been lifted by the editors at Cooks Illustrated as well as a feature in the Huff Post. It's perfect for the Aga if crisp bacon is the goal.
Let's see how this goes down in the Agakitchen
- Lay bacon out on cookie pan
- Add 1/2 cup of water sprinkly evenly over the bacon
- Bake on floor of Roasting Oven 8 minutes
- Rotate pan and cook an addtional 4 to 8 minutes. Use good judgement
End result is a perfectly crisp, evenly cooked but not too brittle bacon
