Freezing Bacon

As of right now I am ordering a 30lb box of bacon and I am freezing portions of it in ziploc bags. We probably use about 15lbs a week give or take. Does anyone have any other way to freeze bacon that will be portioned and will not waste?

As chefbuba said, the majority of bacon comes in 15# cases. We use about 75# per week and I've never seen a 30# case of sliced bacon, unless you're buying it in slab form? If sliced, are you buying shingled or "laid out" bacon? You can easily split cases of laid out bacon in any potion you like for freezing, and using later just by peeling of the desired number of sheets and wrapping in plastic wrap.. Shingled bacon is tougher but not impossible. Just more handling.

The real question is why are you freezing it in the first place? It's not going to go bad in a 2 week period?

Bacon keeps pretty well- that's why they invented it in the first place.  I wouldn't bother freezing it myself. But it does freeze just fine.

Funny, I thought they invented it to go along with 2 over easys, or on top of my burger, or to wrap scallops or meatloaf, or to infuse vodka, or to candy, or.......

Agree with everyone here but want to mention that a company out of Chico, Ca. has layflat in 30# cases, so I'm sure a few others do as well. But I've only seen it in the last year or so.
