There is enough to cook a few cloves of garlic in it. Then I add a tin of tomatoes or whatever I'm going to add in.

I bought a 'Circulon' covered saute pan a while back, great for dry-frying. It's super non-stick and you can put them in the oven. I think they are well worth it if you're trying to cook healthier dinners.

Cooking for engineers has a great article on bacon:
http://www.cookingforengineers.com/a...3/Bacon-Part-I

The conclusion is that the nitrates are the most dodgy thing about them (also in a lot of other cured or processed foods, turkey rashers I imagine too). When cooked at high temperatures (above 150C), the sodium nitrate in bacon can go carcinogenic. Some suggest putting the oven on between 100-120C and leaving the rashers in over night. I've done this before (if not entirely on purpose) and they really taste unbelievably good.

Must try it sometime, might be like beef jerky. I have baked rashers before, very easy way to cook a large amount, cooks really quick and very crispy.

Yup I'm a fellow bacon medallions fan!
Same here. I used to work near a centra that did hot food, €11 per kilo. I used to get 2 tongs, go the the bacon and use them to rip out the medallions, leaving a heap of fat behind A fraction of what they would cost in the supermarkets, esp. with all the water loss.

Surprisingly they're very crisp... kind of sweeter and less bitter or something too.
