Preheat a skillet to medium-high heat. Add bacon and cook for 6-8 minutes, or until golden and crispy and fat is rendered. Take bacon out of pan and drain on paper towels. Discard bacon fat except keep 2-3 tablespoons in the pan to cook the onion and garlic. Reduce heat to medium and add the onion and garlic. Cook for 2-3 minutes until translucent.
