You're tearing into a pack of bacon, but you have a hard time pulling the strips apart without them sticking or tearing. This tip from America's Test Kitchen makes those strips peel away easily: just roll the pack into a tight cylinder before you open it, then unroll it and flatten it out again.
Here's how it works: when you roll up the pack (lengthwise) and then unroll it, you press and then separate the strips. It's tough to imagine, but give it a try the next time you have a pack of bacon to open — it works like a charm and makes it easy to peel away individual strips for even cooking.
ATK has a few other bacon-related tips at the link below, including a great way to freeze individual slices so you don't have the sticky-slice problem with any leftovers. Have a better way to go about it? Tried this method? Share it in the comments below.
