Line the plate or dish with 2-4 pieces of paper towel. The more you use the more grease is soaked up. Lay bacon in single layer, do not overlap. If needed pre-cut the slices in half to better accommodate your microwave. Cover with 2 more pieces of paper towels. Make sure to completely cover the bacon otherwise it will splatter grease inside the microwave. Microwave for 2 min on high power. Check the bacon then microwave in 30 sec spurts until prepared to taste.
