So I’m not going to bore you with a full review on the Kirkland Signature Reduced Salt Premium Bacon because bacon usually tastes like... bacon but I do want to point out three reasons why I prefer the Kirkland Signature bacon over other brands.
1. The flavor of the bacon – The Costco Kirkland Signature Bacon has a really nice smoked flavor so if you like a little smokiness to your bacon, try this. Despite being reduced sodium this bacon is also super flavorful.
2. The price of the bacon- So the price of this bacon fluctuates, I have found it can be anywhere from $14.99 Canadian to $21.99 Canadian. For this price you get four 500g packages. Most other bacon packages I’ve noticed are about 375g and can cost more. Therefore you’re getting more bacon for usually less money.
3. The quality of the bacon- The Costco Kirkland Signature Bacon never disappoints. You get nice thick, even strips of bacon that are usually quite lean compare to other brands. With the reduced sodium bacon, two strips of bacon is only 150mg of sodium which is really not that much.
Now onto my favorite bacon cooking tip. I used to try to make bacon in a fry pan and it always ended in disaster. Lots of mess and unevenly cooked bacon. Either burnt or underdone. Now I cook my bacon on a cookie sheet in the oven and it has changed my life. I don’t deal with grease or mess at all. If you’ve never tried this before, try it! You’ll be pleasantly surprised
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line baking sheet with aluminum foil.
2. Place parchment paper over top the aluminum foil.
3. Lay bacon flat on baking tray, try not to overlap the strips, you can lay them quite close to one another.
4. Bake in oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until your desired doneness. I like my bacon crispy and well done. Pat bacon with a paper towel and place on a paper towel lined plate to remove excess grease.
5. To clean up, simply pull each corner of aluminum foil up so you trap the grease and continue to fold it into a little rectangle grease trap.
