Oven Bacon

I don’t know why it took me so long to come around to the idea of cooking bacon in my oven.  Old habits die hard I guess.  However, once I caught on to this approach to bacon, I’ve never turned back to the frying pan.  Oven bacon is faster, easier, and has a whole lot less mess to deal with.  It’s especially great when feeding a crowd!

Oven Bacon

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, then lay the bacon on the parchment, making sure the bacon strips do not overlap.  Bake until crisp and brown, about 15-18 minutes, or rotating the baking sheet once to ensure even baking.  Transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.

Notes:  I usually fit about nine strips of bacon on a baking sheet, but that will depend on the size of your pan.  I  have another tray ready to go in when one comes out.  The baking time will also vary with how thick your bacon is and how crispy you like it.
