You could always cook a load, and put it in the fridge, you then have pre cooked bacon for 2-3 days. Then repeat.

Extortionate pricing, which is the reason why no-one but lazy people buy it.

my friend cooks it in the microwave!

You could cook it & freeze it. It only take's a couple of minutes in the pan or on a health grill though.
Aldi, Lidl, iceland etc... also sell the pre-cooked version, might be cheaper there.
Bit off topic but i think quite a lot of bacon is cured and therefore edible without cooking. (check if it's cured before you eat it though or you might end up with a dodgy tummy). I'm not so sure that it would rival a cooked bacon buttie though.
Then there is Pancetta, which is sort of Italy's version of bacon. It's cured & can be eaten straight fron pack or lightly pan fried. It's so amazingly yum, usually not the cheapest but totally worth it every now and then (again Aldi is likely cheaper).

Price wise it wasn't daft although I can't remember it exactly. But it's small strips of streaky. Like at Subway.

Comes in like a bucket type tub,

I've bought it from Costco before, think it was between £5.50 to £6 not sure on the weight of the pack
#26
Can't think of anywhere you can't buy it - all big Supermarkets incl Lidl and Aldi.

Its is better fried or grilled but......
you can cook in a microwave quite well if you use thin bacon which has a low water content (dry cure or the like). Flabby cheap bacon is the pits. Cut most of the fat off and clip the sides with scissors in a couple of places to stop it curling up. I cook it between 2 sheets of kitchen towel to sop up the fat and any water.
It is a bit of trial end error for timings, but about 90 sec per rasher should give you slightly browned bacon. You can't get the crispy fried effect. There are products which allege that they will produce crispy micro bacon.

ps I have tried pre-cooked supermarket bacon and didn't rate it.
