Cooked bacon lasts up to 5 days in the refrigerator and up to 6 weeks in the freezer. Although these guidelines are generally acceptable, check the bacon for strange odors or coloring before eating it.
Cooked bacon that is frozen has a longer shelf life than raw frozen bacon, so preparing it before freezing provides the benefit of an extended expiration date as well as easy food prep.
