Perfect Oven Cooked Bacon


  • 1 pack bacon


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • Line baking sheet with heavy duty foil
  • Lay out your strips of bacon - try not to overlap (it's okay to let them curl up a bit- they don't have to be completely flat)
  • Bake 20-30 minutes or until it reaches desired crispness
  • I like mine crisp but not burnt so if I'm using thin bacon (great for crumbling) it's about 25 minutes - for the thick stuff I might let it go up to 35 minutes depending on what I'm using it for.
  • **Quick clean up tip in the cooler months - stick the pan full of grease outside for a couple minutes. The cold air will solidify the grease quickly so you can easily remove the foil without dribbles.
