How To Make Perfect Bacon in the Oven

    Let me show you how to make PERFECT bacon every time – you’ll never make it another way again! How to Bake Bacon for the most perfect .
    *Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
    Place oven rack in center of oven. Lay slices of bacon side-by-side in a single layer in a pan with a lip- jelly roll pan, roasting pan, cookie sheet. If you are cooking a lot of bacon, it’s okay for the bacon slices to slightly over lap (see second above). For easier clean-up, you can line your pan with foil.
    Cook for approximately 15 to 20 minutes and then check your bacon. If cooking thin slices of bacon, check sooner, between 10 to 12 minutes. Cooking times will vary depending on the thickness of your bacon and how crispy you like it. If necessary and for even cooking, you may need to flip your bacon once using tongs- this depends on the thickness of the bacon.
    Once bacon is golden brown and has reached desired crispness, remove with tongs and place on platter lined with paper towel. Enjoy!
    Cleanup Allow grease to cool. Never pour bacon grease down the drain. Pour cooled grease in a heat-proof container and refrigerate to save for cooking later or discard in trash. If using foil, allow the grease to solidify and then gently fold and toss in trash.
