Bacon

To cut easily: freeze for thirty minutes.

To reduce shrinkage: Run bacon under cold water before frying,  This can reduce shrinkage and curling by up to 50%.

To separate slices: Before you open a package of bacon, roll it. This will help separate the slices for easy removal.

To fry ahead of time: Cook and drain, then wrap in wax paper. Freeze them in a plastic zippered bag or other freezer container. Reheat briefly in a skillet.

Meatloaf

To mix: The next time you make meatloaf, put all ingredients in a zippered plastic  bag and knead the ingredients in the bag.  No mess!  You can also use your potato masher to mix ingredients and also keep those hands grease free.

To make a meatloaf that cooks faster, don’t use a loaf pan.  Instead, mold your loaf on a cookie sheet or metal pie plate lined with foil or parchment.  The longer and skinnier you make it, the faster it will cook.  As an added bonus, you won’t have a pan to clean and will have more browned crust.

For individual portions:  Divide the meatloaf into muffin tins.  This will not only  cook faster, it’s great for kids too.

To prevent sticking in pan: Meatloaf will not stick if you place a few strips of bacon on the bottom of the pan.
