How to Freeze Uncooked Bacon for Easy Use Later

Don’t always use an entire package of bacon at once? Freeze it so it lasts longer, using this tip to keep the strips separate. You can then defrost individual slices depending on how many you need.

To save what’s left of a package of bacon, lay the raw strips about ¼-inch apart on parchment or wax paper. Cover them with another piece of paper and roll them up. Put the roll in a plastic freezer bag, seal, and freeze. Then, when you need a slice or two of bacon, simply unroll the paper, remove what you need, and freeze the remainder.
