I am planning a Sunday brunch for a few friends. I have my menu already, but have a ? about serving sausage links and bacon that I plan on making in advance. Should I heat them up in the oven that morning? (I am afraid the microwave would make my premade bacon soggy.) And for how long? Thanks!!
I would just totally cook the bacon the morning of my brunch. That way you'll know it is perfect -- put a cookie rack on a sheet pan, lay the bacon on top and bake. It comes out perfect every time. Pull it when it is at desired doneness -- cooked to crispy. And it's flat and there is no grease all over anything!
And I would probably do that with the sausage as well although I never have but it would make sense.
Not the answer your wanted but an answer!

Quite a while ago I learned from a friend that it is easier to cook a pound of bacon at once. Use what you want and store the rest securely covered in the refrig. I just re-heat by putting it in the oven at 170º
When we have what we call a "big" breakfast when DD and her family are here that is what I do as our kitchen is simply too small to accommodate bacon baking with pancake making let alone scrambled eggs!
Thank you, Martha and LoS!! I value both of your opinions!!~~~smiley face~~(how come my smileys don't show up??)
LoS, for how long in the 170 degree oven? Thanks!
I did a breakfast for a crowd recently and I used the precooked bacon from Costco. It was great. You finish off cooking it on a griddle for 3 or 4 minutes, and you have hot crispy bacon. Seriously, a couple of minutes!
My situation was that I was cooking a breakfast for about 20 teenagers. I help out with the youth program at my church, and we went out to watch the sunrise and then they all came to my house for breakfast.
I made scrambles eggs, bacon, muffins and juice. I had pre-cracked about 6 dozen eggs into a big bowl and whipped them up ready for cooking. That was in the fridge while we were out. I cooked the whole batch in a big (pie -ay-ya) pan. (Have no idea how to really spell that, but it is a super big fry type pan)
The bacon was sitting in my big griddle ready to go. The muffins were already baked the day before, juice was in the fridge.
When we came in, I turned on the bacon, and poured the eggs into their pan. The bacon was done in a couple minutes, and the eggs about 5. By the time the kids had washed up, and goofed around for a couple of minutes breakfast was ready hot off the stove. It was super easy.
Can't tell you what to do with sausage.This message has been edited. Last edited by: cocok,
I bake my bacon flat on a cookie sheet and drain it on absorbent toweling.
Link sausage I also have baked in oven.
However, it's reassuring to have some prep done ahead when you have guests.
Just reheat the meats on the same tray in oven for 5 - 7 minutes at 300 or so.
Check a sausage with meat thermometer.
Cocok it is paella!
Frappe, I would think about 6 to 10 min. Today I heated up some of that yummy apple dumpling dessert, just to warm it up before we ate it. I often heat things up this way inc our dinner plates.
I recently discovered the joy of eating pancetta instead of regular American bacon. Although it is twice as expensive (8.99 a lb) there is virtually no waste and it fries up in mere minutes and is nice and crispy. It is salty though. I bought domestic at my store's deli counter.
