Bacon is great! No doubt on that. But it is just great if it is really crunchy and crispy. The secret for crunchy bacon is take your time and use just medium-low heat and your bacon will turn into nice crispy pieces.
Add oil to a frying pan. Then add the bacon. The bacon slices should not overlap. Make sure to fry slowly over medium-low heat. Flip bacon when it begins to curl. Bacon is finished when crispy and golden.
Place the bacon on a paper towel-lined plate to remove excess fat. Enjoy for breakfast or add an extra crunch to soups or salads.
