Sizzle sizzle. Ah, the sound of bacon cooking in a pan. Some cheeseburger fans think it's an essential topping between the bun. Some have gone as far as saying: "there are few things on this earth more important than bacon." For bacon fans, the texture is of extreme importance. You want a little bend but not a floppy slice. Some crunch, but it shouldn't break your teeth. How do you like your bacon on a cheeseburger?
