Bacon should be stored in the freezer to keep it longer. On TikTok, @ceddies_kitchen shows how to do this using parchment paper in a single layer with space between each slice.
With the longer side facing you, fold the parchment until the bacon is enclosed. Flatten the roll to find the gaps, and use shears to cut between them, creating individual packets.
The raw bacon's slightly sticky texture will keep these packets intact, so the slices won't fall out. Place each wrapped slice into a resealable plastic bag.
Label the bag with the date and contents, and freeze immediately. Since each piece is individually wrapped, you can remove as much or as little as you need.
You can prevent freezer burn by tightly wrapping the bacon bundles to expel excess air from the bag. Trapped air leads to ice crystal formation, which dries out the meat.
Remove the bacon the night before using it and place it on a plate on your fridge's bottom shelf. It can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week and refrozen if not cooked.
