Oven Bacon

Bacon is a fairly simple thing to cook.  It can get pretty messy and splatted and smokey if you cook it on the stove top though.  So we always cook ours in the oven,  I never thought about putting the how to for it on here because its not really a recipe but when my Mom called the other day to see how I do it I figured other people might like to know as well.  So here you go....

Oven Bacon

cooking spray
cooking sheet
tinfoil or parchment paper

I usually cover my cooking sheet in tin foil, my mom loves parchment paper, but for the pictures I just sprayed a pan with cooking spray.  It works the same any way you do it but on the parchment paper you don't have to flip them.

Lay out your bacon doing your best not to over lap them,  a little over lapping if fine but it's easier to get them apart if they aren't touching to much.
Put it in a preheated oven at 400* F.  for 10 minutes.

After 10 minutes the bacon looks like this.  I flip each piece over just so they don't burn to the pan and they are easier to get off when you are done.
Put back in the oven for 5 more minutes.
15 minutes is usually the perfect bacon for my family... you can test it and do a little more time for crispyer or less for more fatty.

Pin It!
