• yeah use ur mums weighing scales for this, itl be oz. if you dont have scales tht measure ounces, then the recipe book should have a conversion chart
  • Most packages of bacon are one pound (check the front of the package, it might even say how many ounces). I'd just eyeball it. If you get a 1 pound package, use about a fourth of the bacon (16 oz in a pound, 3 oz is a little less than 1/4 of that, but bacon shrinks when you cook it) :) Good luck!
  • Not laughing, fair question, Yep you need a scale, 3 ounce = 85 Grammes or 0.085kg. Happy Cooking. :-)
  • A slice of bacon is an ounce so just put in 3 slices of bacon to the recipe. I am glad that at 14 you are at least trying to cook from a recipe.
  • Cooked bacon? That's a little less than 1/2 cup, if you have measuring cups available. For uncooked bacon, if it is a pound package - 16 ounces -, 3 ounces would be a little less than 1/4 of the package.
  • Three ounces of bacon is a little less than 1/4 of a pound, or 1/4 of a typical one-pound package. If you don't have a whole package to refer to, or a scale, I'd say an amount you could ball up comfortably in your fist would be about right - like gripping a tennis ball or a little smaller than that. Use your judgment, though; you may be "only" 14 but you're the chef! If it looks too much, take a little back. If it looks puny, add a little more. Just remember that bacon does shrink down when it cooks. Congrats on trying this, I'm sure you'll do fine! You can always adjust the recipe for a second try later if you need to; I do that all the time.
  • If you have regular cut bacon, I'd use probably 3 or 4 slices. My thick-cut package, I'd only use two, but it'd be the same amount. Take a slice less than 1/4 of a pound package, and you'll be fine.
  • About 3 slices of regular thin slice bacon will work.
