All my boys ADORE bacon and it’s a Sunday morning tradition. If you’ve found stove-top bacon to be a messy event, switch to this method and you’ll NEVER look back! Not only will you keep all the mess in the oven, following these steps will ensure that your bacon comes out in nice, crispy strips, instead of that “curled and shriveled” experience.
Here you go:
1. Cover a large baking sheet (with sides) with heavy-duty foil; place bacon strips side-by-side, as closely as possible, but not touching, across foil. **Note – you don’t have to use the foil; it just helps with super easy clean up!
2. Place loaded baking sheet into a COLD oven.
3. Now turn oven to 400 degrees F. Cook bacon, uncovered, for 10-12 minutes. Using tongs, fiip bacon over and continue to cook an additional 5-10 minutes until it’s browned and crisped to the degree you like; transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate to cool for a few minutes. It’s ready!
Now You’re Cookin’,
