This is the easiest and only way I make bacon. By using this method you can make more bacon at once and you do not get splattered by the bacon. There is no preheating the oven. It is easy cleanup too. Now that is a win-win to me.
- 1 lb. bacon – uncured, free of nitrites and nitrates
Line baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place bacon on sheet pan. Place sheet pan in oven. Turn oven to 400 degrees. When your oven hits 400 degrees, turn bacon over and return to oven. Bake in oven to desired crispness.
I’ve tried a few different methods that said you did not have to flip the bacon. I thought the results were not as good as this method.
Transfer cooked bacon to paper towel lined plate. Blot bacon of excess bacon fat. Do not throw out the bacon fat in the baking sheet. Let it cool and pour into a mason jar, and store in the refrigerator. You can use this for making eggs, savory biscuits, and many other delicious foods.
Serve. Eat. Enjoy.
