Do you know the fastest, easiest way to cook bacon? We’re talking a whole pound all at once? Without the risk of splatter burns? I do!
Step 1: Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment or foil so that it goes up and over the sides. I like parchment. My foil is never big enough to cover the whole pan, so I have to use two pieces of foil and fold them together to make one sheet. The grease sometimes seeps through the seam and makes my pan dirtier than I prefer, but either works fine.
Step 2: Lay out your strips of bacon. If they touch a little it’s ok, but they may stick together as they cook. I was crumbling this bacon anyway, so it didn’t matter.
Step 3: Bake at 375°F for 15-20 minutes, or until desired crispness. Time is really dependent on the thickness of your bacon and how crispy you like it.
Step 4: EAT ALL THE BACON. Wait, first you should remove it to a paper towel lined plate to soak up the grease. I got ahead of myself over the smell of this delicious bacon.
Step 5: Lay out a few paper towels over the grease on the pan to soak it up. Remove the parchment/foil and drop it in the garbage can. Seriously, if you did it right, your pan will barely be dirty. It’s AMAZING.
Have you ever made bacon in the oven? I love this method. Give it a try!
