Step 1 Place 2 paper towels on a microwave safe plate. Place 4 pieces of bacon per layer depending on how many servings. One layer, one serving, placing a paper towel between each layer. I limit mine to 4 servings.
Step 2 Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Remove and check for doneness, since microwaves cook differently. Place again for 2 minute intervals until bacon is your level of crispness. Remove paper towels and place on serving plate.
Place the desired pieces of bacon on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake in preheated 400 degree oven for about 10 minutes, Check about every 2 minutes, thereafter. or until it reached level of crispness you want.
