My aunt is a little quirky and loves to get the kids funny gifts for christmas. This year she gave them packages of bacon! My 11 year old son thought this was the best gift ever. We rarely use a whole pack of bacon in one meal. So I wanted to find ways to store the bacon so the kids could take out 1-2 slices at a time to cook for breakfast or to put on a sandwich for lunch.

Roll the bacon slices individually and place on a plate lined with wax paper or parchment paper. place the plate flat in the freezer until bacon is frozen. then you can put the bacon wraps in a ziplock bag and store in the freezer. You can take out the desired number of pieces and allow them to defrost, then unroll them and cook as you usually would.
