  • 1 pound bacon


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Line a large baking sheet with heavy-duty foil.
  • Layout the 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 for 20-30 minutes or until it reaches desired crispness. I like mine at about 25 minutes, but this depends on the brand and thickness of the cut.


**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.
