There’s an old joke about how nuking food in the microwave somehow makes it unhealthier. This, of course, is a myth, but that doesn’t mean microwave food always comes out looking edible. But with enough practice and microwave know-how, you, too, can come up with delicious recipes. Here are 50+ microwave meals that would even fool Gordon Ramsay.
We’d like to kick things off for all the microwave haters out there. Did you know that you can achieve the same levels of crispiness and deliciousness in your microwave as you could in an oven? To see what we mean, let’s use the riskiest food of all—bacon.
Getting microwaved bacon as crispy as baked bacon isn’t that hard. All you need to do is place a few strips of the salty meat strips on two paper towels, place the paper towels on a plate, and fold the paper towel over to cover the top of the bacon strips. Pop the plate into the microwave for a few minutes, and your bacon should be done to perfection.
