The Musical Bacon Tip Snoop Dogg Gave Martha Stewart

The friendship and on-camera chemistry between Snoop Dogg and Martha Stewart may have seemed like a slightly a strange match when they first teamed up on "The Martha Stewart Show" back in 2008, but the two have since become the perfect odd pairing. The juxtaposition of their career backgrounds has made the two extremely fun to watch on "Martha & Snoop's Potluck Dinner Party," a variety-meets-cooking show with plenty of star-studded guests involved.

Although the Martha Stewart enterprise spans everything from home and gardening to health and wellness, as well as tips and tricks you can infuse into your home cooking routine, that doesn't mean she can't learn a thing or two from her legendary hip hop co-host. Stewart has walked the multi-platinum artist and Guinness World Record holder through the nuances of how to make the creamiest mashed potatoes and the tastiest brownies, but when it comes to bacon, it was Snoop who laid down his key tip on how to achieve the best results. 

In an interview with InsideHook, Snoop Dogg revealed the advice he gave Stewart: "It's a certain sound that the bacon will make to let you know that it's done," he said, going on to explain, "Food talks to you. That's why when you cook it with love, people appreciate it." According to the "Drop It Like It's Hot" rapper, there's a soft whistling noise that bacon makes when it's frying in its own fat, letting you know when it's just right.

How Snoop Dogg cooks his bacon perfectly

There's no doubt that Snoop Dogg knows how to put together a banger of a song, but how do his musical skills help get him the perfect bacon? The avid foodie and author of "From Crook to Cook: Platinum Recipes from Tha Boss Dogg's Kitchen" said that to achieve his "Billion Dollar Bacon," there are a few steps to follow. "It's how you put 'em in there and how you move 'em around, the sound you're listening to when they're done — not even a look, but it's the sound you're listening for," he told InsideHook.

Bacon can be enjoyed at various stages of cooking. If you like it a little on the chewy side, then you want to remove the strips from your heat source before all of the fat has had a chance to render. At that point, the bacon should still be making a steady sizzling sound. However, if crispy bacon is your thing, then you want it cooked well enough so all of the fat has rendered out and the pork starts to turn a darker shade of brown. By now, the bacon should be all sizzled out, letting you know that the "music" has stopped and it's completely cooked. So the next time you're frying up a few strips of your favorite type of savory bacon, why not take a few tips from the Doggfather himself and keep an ear out for when it hits the right notes of readiness?
