sure!  leave it in the unopened package and it will keep for a couple months.  once you open it,  quickly reward the rest and replace in freezer.  here's to good cooking

You also can cook the whole package and then drain them....freeze them in a zip loc bag and just defrost and heat for 30 seconds in paper on plate in microwave.  Or if you want to make them each time you could freeze them seperate on a tray and then bag them and take one raw one at a time.  I like to cook them all that way I get rid of the grease at one time.

We just cooked a whole lb of bacon last week and then added some solid shortening and let it cool off a little and stirred bird seed into it and took it out on the summer kitchen outside and when it set up cut it into chunk to fit our feeders after the bacon cooled off we rolled up the paper towels and put the bacon into a heavy duty freezer bag and rolled it gently to get the air out and dated & froze it.
Absolutely! If you will use the bacon for breakfast as whole strips, freeze it in portions. If you want to use it in cooking, you can freeze the whole pack, then just cut from the side anytime you need some bacon. A half inch cut off the side at once gives you the equivalent of one strip. I do it all the time.

Most certainly!!!  As a widow, I do it regularly. 

I usually cut the whole pack in 1/2 and freeze since that's easier than trying to separate.  I don't care if my bacon strips are short!!!  :-)

Also, if you use bacon "pieces", it's really easy to cut frozen from the end (as Luise stated) with a big knife.  I do this all the time for pasta alio olio and alfredo or even as a quick addition to a salad.
