Oven Baked Bacon

Do you ever bake your bacon in the oven? It’s a perfect method, especially if you’re cooking for a crowd. Baking the bacon also gives you time to work on other things while it cooks and saves you a little clean up work.

Here’s what you need:

  • Thick Sliced Bacon
  • Sheet Pan
  • Aluminum Foil
  • Baking Rack or Cooling Rack
I typically use thick cut bacon when serving for breakfast. I use thinner cut slices when making items that are wrapped in bacon. Whatever your choice of thin or thick sliced, baking it will work.
Preheat your oven to 400 ℉.
Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil. Add a baking rack or cooling rack and arrange bacon slices on the rack.
Place in oven and bake until desired crispiness. For the thick slices I use this will be 25-30 minutes. I like bacon on the crispy side.
When the bacon reaches the desired level of crispy you enjoy, remove it from the oven. Allow to cook 5 minutes and serve.
See what I mean about being able to work on other stuff? Enjoy your coffee, make the toast, whip up some muffins…..well you get the idea.

    I'm so excited to try this! My stovetop (and arms) are premium tools when it comes to breakfast, so anything to free up me or my stove is excellent! Thank you! – Jerusha,
