Hack: Make this a complete meal by adding one or two hard-boiled eggs!

Hack:  Do not assemble salad until ready to eat.  If there are ingredients leftover, wrap them individually and store in the refrigerator until ready to eat.

Hack: To make bacon crumbles, preheat oven to 350℉.  Place a low rack on a sheet pan with sides (so the grease won’t run into the oven).  Lay uncooked bacon slices on top of the rack.  Put in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until crisp and browned.

Drain bacon on paper towels until cool.  Crumble to the desired size.

1 lb bacon will make about 1 cup bacon crumbles

  Store any leftover bacon grease tightly covered in the refrigerator for up to 6 months.  It can be used as a substitute for butter in various dishes.  Caution:  Use caution when cooking with bacon grease.  It has a smoke point similar to butter, which is lower than oils.
