To be honest, I was totally skeptical when I heard about this method of cooking bacon. The thought of adding water to my favourite breakfast item conjured images of soggy (read: boiled), sad strips of rubbery bacon. Basically, blasphemy in the bacon-lover’s world.

But upon learning that the geniuses behind this awesome trick is America’s Test Kitchen — who produce amazing, no-fail recipes — well, I quickly became a believer.

And soon you will too! Watch the trick being demonstrated in this video.
