General: Food Network, Rachael Ray »
I’ve been noticing a lot of pointless recipes on the Food Network’s website lately (Robin Miler’s carrot ginger salad anyone?) but this one really takes the cake. Ladies and gentlemen, behold: RACHAEL RAY’S LATE NIGHT BACON RECIPE:
That’s right! Are you ready for your ingredient list? Here we go. You’ll need….. brace yourselves……… BACON!
Once you have your bacon, you have to rip off 2 pieces of paper towel (not 1, not 3), and place them on a microwave safe plate. But hold on. Here’s where it gets tricky. You then have to carefully arrange the bacon slices so they don’t overlap! MOVE SLOWLY WHILE PERFORMING THIS DELICATE PROCEDURE. You may find holding your breath will help you hold your hand steadier. /end sarcasm
Seriously? A recipe for MICROWAVE BACON? Is this a joke? Are we being punked? I don’t know how this made it onto the Food Network’s website, but I’m glad it did because some of the user reviews are hilarious:
“Made this. I crossed the strips and experienced total prosciuttic reversal. My hunger increased exponentially and every sodium molecule in my kitchen exploded at the speed of light.” -written by Fooley
“I just realized that maybe I can even heat up “sammys” in the microwave. All this time I thought it was to store stuff!” -written by Jamie
“This is BRILLIANT. I bet you could microwave things like soup, too. You just put it in there and it cooks. Amazing.” -written by srseeker
“My bacon kept overlapping. I will not be remaking.” -written by simdude
Simdude… hold your breath while arranging the bacon on the plate next time. Good luck. And may the force be with you.
