Oven Bacon

This is literally a game changer! I've never gone back once I figured out this great way to do bacon in the oven. It's easy.... not really a recipe, but a technique that is too good not to share.

Oven Bacon

Serves 4-6

1/2 lb. bacon slices

On a 12X17" sheet pan, cover with aluminum foil (I use non-stick foil). Lay out bacon slices, making sure they don't touch each other. I cut them in half first. Bake in a 400°F oven for 15 minutes (longer if you have thick-cut bacon), until cooked to desired crispness. Remove from oven and move bacon to paper towels to collect extra grease (most will be left on the foil). Serve immediately.

Step-by-step tutorial:

Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a sheet pan with non-stick aluminum foil or spray regular foil with cooking spray. Be sure the slices aren't touching each other.

Bake for 15 minutes or until desired crispness.

Remove to paper towels. Serve immediately.

HUGE plus to this technique is clean-up. All you have to do is wait for the pan and grease to cool (grease will start to solidify), then roll up foil and throw away. Done!
