I cook bacon on an iron skillet, too. I love the fact that we don't need to add oil as it will just continue to grease the skillet as it cooks. I just cook it to golden brown. There was a time I saw steamed bacon served in a hotel breakfast buffet. It looks weird to me, but I had no choice that time because I wanted bacon on my sandwich. It was OK for a sandwich, though. Maybe others would like their bacon steamed. Not me.
