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.
