General Cooking Instructions for Nueske's Smoked Bacon

Jan 1st 2018

Here are Nueske's recommendations for storing and cooking bacon.


  • Nueske's vacuum-packaged bacon


  1. Storage: Refrigerate immediately. Vacuum-packaged bacon will keep for 3 weeks in refrigerator or up to 3 months in the freezer. Once opened, use within 1 week.
  2. Frying: For best results, place bacon in unheated skillet. Cook over medium low heat. Turn frequently until desired crispness is attained. You’ll notice less shrinkage than with other brands.
  3. Microwave: On microwave-safe plate, place bacon slices side by side between layers of paper toweling. Cook on HIGH for the following approximate times: 2 slices of bacon for 2 - 2 1/2 minutes; 4 slices of bacon for 4 - 4 1/2 minutes; 6 slices of bacon for 5 - 6 minutes.
