Here is how to microwave bacon

To microwave bacon, put 4 or 5 sheets of paper towels on a microwave safe plate.  Lay 4 or five slices of bacon on the paper towels.

Place another layer of paper towels on top of the bacon and repeat the layers until you have as much bacon as you want to cook, ending with a layer of paper towels on top.  You can actually microwave a lot of bacon at one time this way.
