Baking Bacon

Bacon is delicious.  If America had an official food (it probably does but that doesn’t help my argument), it would likely be bacon.  We’re a bit obsessed with it.  You know what I’m not obsessed with?  Having to cook it in several batches because only a few pieces will fit in your frying pan.  Luckily, I have a solution that will get all of your bacon done at the same time and with way less effort than you previously had to put into making bacon.
You can bake bacon in the oven! What?! This is definitely a game-changer. And, just to put your heart at ease, no, it won’t make the inside of your oven a huge, greasy mess. Here’s how to do it:


Grab a pan. Any pan will do. I’ve used a large casserole dish. I’ve used a cake pan, I’ve used a cookie sheet. Just get a decently big one.

Line that pan with aluminum foil.

Lay your bacon out in a single layer on your pan. If it doesn’t all fit, it’s okay to pretty tightly pack the pan.                     20160314_191939

Now, put the pan in the oven and turn it in to 375 degrees. There is no need to preheat the oven before putting the bacon in.

How long you should leave it in the oven depends on how you like your bacon cooked. I like mine on the verge of being burned and this takes about 25-30 minutes normally. I would suggest checking it after about 18 minutes.
