Line a large plate (at least the same diameter as the bacon length) with 3 layers of paper towels.
Arrange the bacon in a single layer on the paper towels, without overlapping. Top the bacon with 3 more layers of paper towels.
Microwave on High for 5-6 minutes for average thickness bacon, 3-5 minutes for thinner pieces, or 7-9 minutes for thick cut, until done to your liking. (Start checking at the lower end of the time ranges or even a minute before.)
