Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Save your stovetop from splatters and bake the bacon on a foil-lined cookie sheet at 400°F for 10 to 15 minutes until crisp.
  • tip 2
    For Maple-Walnut Ice Cream, substitute toasted chopped walnuts for the bacon. Omit the melted chocolate chips, and stir the nuts into the ice cream after the freezing time in the ice-cream freezer.
