How to be Rash when Cooking Bacon

What is a rasher of bacon?

A rasher is a single slice of bacon or raw pork, generally intended for frying or broiling. Our dictionary has lowered its standards, and so also lets in the definition that it can be a serving of several such slices.

Rasher comes from a Latin word meaning to scrape. (You might notice its similarity to raclette, which comes from the French word meaning to scrape. Then again, you might not.)
