I love bacon and eat it whenever I can despite all of my friends & family's health warnings vis-à-vis artery clogging fat & cholesterol. In fact when we grocery shopped I had to "accidently" buy it by claiming that I had no idea how it got into our cart; someone else must have inadvertently put it into our cart instead of theirs.
So a few weeks ago while surfing the web I came across this microwave bacon cooker (shown above) that drains most of the fat from the bacon while it cooks it. I ordered it on-line...not telling Teddy, and unsure of what her reaction would be when it arrived.  She was skeptical at first but now she loves it. It took a few tries to get the cooking time(s) right but now I am allowed two strips of bacon whenever I have eggs for breakfast. 
I am a happy camper!!!   Well...happier, I was happy before. ;-))
