How to Cook Bacon

Kiolbassa Dry Cured Bacon is made the way it was in the old days, before companies started pumping it full of water, phosphates and other chemicals. Because of our slow-crafted® method, Kiolbassa Dry Cured Bacon does not shrink, shrivel or splatter like other bacons. So, you get more bacon and a bolder flavor in every slice. The result is a slow-crafted® bacon, without a mess, that will taste better than any bacon you’ve ever had before!

  • Let’s fry bacon! Start by laying the bacon flat on the skillet – cast iron or regular skillet. Turn the burner on to low/medium heat.
  • Turn bacon while frying until desired crispness is reached, about 6-8 minutes.
  • The bacon will continue to cook some after removing it from the pan, so cook it until it’s almost the way you like, then move it to a paper towel lined plate.
  • Let the Kiolbassa Dry Cured Bacon finish sizzling and cool for just a few minutes. Be patient – the wait is worth it!
  • If you are planning to cook more bacon, drain grease from the skillet. Add the remaining bacon to the already hot skillet. Cooking time and temperatures may vary.
