If you haven’t been cooking bacon this way, you need to start.
This will give you the perfectly cooked bacon that you don’t have to monitor or flip or do anything to, and the clean up as a CINCH.
It is a great way to easily cook large batches of bacon.
For my family, we go through a pound of bacon in one meal, so this is the only way I prepare it anymore.
How do you do it?
Line a baking sheet with foil, put bacon on it, throw that shiz in a cold oven, set the oven for 400°,
and take it out approximately 20 minutes later.
That’s it! It’s so easy, and your bacon stays flat and it cooks evenly and it’s delicious.
If you like to save the bacon grease, just pour it off the foil into a container.
You can use a strainer to remove the cooked bits, or just leave them in there if you want the extra flavor.
Then store it in the fridge and use it whenever you need it for fried eggs or burgers or whatever.
Dispose of foil for easy clean up.
(I know this isn’t super environmentally friendly with the foil, but you are saving water with no clean up necessary. You can also use parchment paper.)
If your family won’t eat a whole pound of bacon at once, you can freeze what’s left over and pull out a couple strips of frozen bacon to use in sandwiches, or simply eat it as is. Just heat it up in the microwave or throw it in a hot pan for a minute and enjoy!
Perfectly Cooked Bacon
This is the best way to cook a whole bunch of bacon at once and have it come out perfect every time.
- 1 package bacon
Line baking sheet with foil or parchment paper. For even crispier bacon, you can put a wire cooking rack on top of the foil and lay the bacon on that.
Place cookie sheet in UNHEATED oven and heat to 400 degrees.
Bake for 20-25 minutes to desired level of crispiness. Cooking time varies from oven to oven. Monitor the first batch to determine your ideal cooking time.
Cool and drain on paper towels.
