Cut bacon into 1" strips with kitchen scissors (stack bacon, then cut through strips with scissors or sharp knife). Cook bacon pieces in a large, heavy pot on medium-high heat until crisp (takes about 5-7 minutes). When done, transfer bacon with a slotted spoon to paper towels to drain. Set aside. Leave bacon grease in pot.
