    How long does cooked bacon last in the refrigerator?

    I'm planning on frying up some bacon to use in a salad in about four days and I'm wondering if the bacon will last that long in the refrigerator.

    After you fry the bacon, drain the fat off, pat dry with a paper towel and put is in a zip lock bag in the freezer.  It will last a long time in the freezer.  Pop the desired number of pieces in the microwave or frying pan when you want to use it.  The bacon will be perfectly ready in just a few seconds.

    I used to give it 6 hours tops, I often cook bacon but get caught up with something else leaving me no choice but to put it in the fridge till later. If its there more than six hours I throw it away, not sure if its still safe but it just don't taste as good!

    It will still be safe to eat for months, at room temp. It will absorb oxygen, and taste stale, but it won't make you sick. The smoking process removes oxygen, replacing it with CO. The salt, and sodium nitrite, prevent anaerobic activity.(Botulism) Bacon is not a potentially hazardous food raw. Cooking it removes water, which makes it even less likely to spoil. As retellect says, it always tastes better fresh.

    It will last--- FOR EVER! (Four days, certainly-- so long as the power remains on, of course.)
