Cooking Bacon in the oven eliminates the mess and gives you consistently crispy, delicious bacon every time. It’s how restaurants do it!
It’s no secret that I think bacon must be the food of the Gods. I’m firmly convinced that bacon is what they greet you with when you get to heaven.
It’s also no secret that I hate cooking bacon on the stovetop. The grease gets everywhere and pops all over the cook.
So, I was very happy to learn sometime in the past the way that bacon is prepared in restaurants is by baking. In the oven. No popping and no grease to clean up from the stovetop afterwards.
I can’t express how happy I am to know this secret. So, I’m passing it on to anyone else who needs to know.
How to – Cooking Bacon in the Oven
First, heat the oven to 400. Then all you do is get a baking pan, line it with parchment (that’s just for me – it makes cleaning the pan easier) and lay out your bacon.
Pop the bacon in the oven for about 6 minutes and then turn it once. Put it back in for about 6 more minutes or until it is as crispy as you like.
Remove it to paper towels to drain. That’s it. You won’t believe how much easier this is than cooking in a skillet on top of the stove and you can’t tell any difference in the taste or texture of the cooked bacon.
