How to Freeze Bacon


Bacon is a savory treat that can be frozen to extend its shelf life, then heated to serve alongside pancakes, eggs or on top of hamburgers. Because bacon usually comes in packages with numerous slices, it can spoil quickly before you have time to use it all up. To freeze bacon, make sure to package it properly to avoid freezer burn.

Things You'll Need

  • Sharp knife
  • Parchment paper
  • 1 1-gal. zipper-top plastic bag
  • Remove bacon from original packaging.

  • Cut bacon once down the middle, creating short strips.

  • Layer strips of bacon between a layer of parchment paper.

  • Seal the parchment paper-wrapped slices of bacon in an airtight, freezer bag.

  • Consume frozen bacon within one to two months of freeze date.
