Chefs know a secret way to cook bacon. With my keto recipe, I share the truth: the only way to make bacon consistently pretty and crispy is to bake it. That’s right, picture perfect fried bacon is cooked in an oven. I do a whole pack at a time so that I am prepared for multiple meals. That’s another kitchen secret: the best bacon is prepared in advance. Ready for one more tip? Line the baking pan with parchment paper to save on clean up. Cooking with most flavor impact, saving time, and avoiding greasy dishes? That’s KetoLuxe.
