The most important thing when cooking bacon on the Foreman Grill is to make sure the grill is as hot as possible. Preheat grill for at least 5 minutes with the lid closed. Place bacon slices on grill, close lid, and leave it alone for several minutes. You can give it a look after about 5 minutes and flip the bacon over. Yes, give it one flip, this will assure even cooking on both side as the top plate may not have the same contact as the lower plate. Let it cook another 2 minutes and you’re good to go. In about 7 minutes you’ll have flat perfectly cooked bacon that is not swimming in its own grease.
