How To Tell If Bacon Is Undercooked

When your bacon’s color begins to change, monitor it more closely. If your bacon starts to  get too dark,  you may be  overcooking it.

When bacon has cooked for a while, it accumulates the little brown bits. Well-cooked bacon is likely to have some fond from the rendered fat caramelizing on it.

Shrinking and puffing are sure-fire signs that your bacon is well on it’s way to being done!

Raw bacon is wet and slimy to the touch, whereas cooked bacon is generally quite dry.

Cooked bacon should lift easily from the pan, without dangling or drooping off the sides of your spatula.
