Can You Freeze Cooked Bacon?

Freezing cooked bacon is a good option for preserving extra bacon, and it is convenient for quick future use. Slightly undercook the bacon you want to freeze, then drain and cool it on paper towels before placing in freezer bags for storage.

Cooked bacon freezes easily and stays fresh in the freezer for up to three months. To use the frozen uncooked bacon, place it in the microwave for a few seconds to reheat or in a pan on the stovetop for one to two minutes. To avoid foodborne illness, cook the bacon thoroughly before eating, preferably to a crispy texture.
