Hog Heaven Country Bacon is traditional, country bacon! It's cured and smoked just like the Romans did thousands of years ago. This bacon contains no nitrates, nitrites, or MSG. It can be shipped without refrigeration, but it's best to refrigerate or freeze upon arrival.
*Please note that this bacon is dry cured, therefore it is salt cured. If you are not a fan of salty foods this bacon would be better for cooking, and not by itself. If you love salt and find yourself pouring it on everything, you will absolutely love this bacon!
One 16 oz. package included.
Availability:Usually ships the same business day

This bacon is dry cured and will stay fresh up to 60-90 days in your pantry. Put this bacon in the fridge or the freezer to keep it fresh longer.
There are many ways to cook bacon, but our favorite way is in the oven! It's easy to do and easy to clean. Here's how we do it:
Line a baking sheet with foil (crumpling the foil a bit will help the grease drain and keep the bacon from sticking to the foil). You can even place a cooling rack on top of your foil lined baking sheet to allow the grease from the cooking bacon to run off completely.
Lay your bacon strips on the foil lined baking sheet and place on the middle rack of the oven. (Or if you're using a cooling rack, lay the strip on the rack.)
Now that your bacon is in the oven, set your oven to 400F. Allowing the oven to heat up while the bacon is already inside ensures that the bacon will cook all the way through without getting too crispy.
Check on your strips in about 17-20 minutes. Some brands may take longer than others depending upon the thickness of the cut.
Remove the baking sheet from the oven and using tongs or a fork, transfer your strips to a paper towel lined pan to absorb the remaining fat and grease.
