How To Cook Bacon In The Oven

by 247tasty

So how do you cook bacon in the oven? Simple! All you need is packed of your favorite bacon, a baking sheet, foil, and 25 minutes. Don’t get me wrong, I love the traditional cooking in a skillet version of bacon with the oil splattering all over and the whole kitchen smelling like bacon all day. But I think this oven-baked bacon is hassle-free and the easier version to enjoy your favorite bacon.

If you are at my house the first thing you’ll notice when you open my fridge is the packs of bacon. Not two or three but more than 5 packs of bacon! We love bacon, we always have it for breakfast, we include it to dishes that require bacon, I put it in my sandwich or burger, or just eat it as is like chips. Crazy, huh? We are a bacon family. Bacon is great to put in your Breakfast Nachos, Ohh I love nachos and bacon sets it on a different level. Baked-ones I mean. I put it on my Southwestern Bacon Quiche, Apple Bacon Toast, and a lot more! Try the oven-baked bacon and I am pretty sure your life will be a little less messy.

How To Cook Bacon In The Oven

Step 1: Lay the bacon on an aluminum foil-lined large baking sheet. Line them in a single layer across the baking sheet. Make sure though that the pieces don’t overlap.

Step 2: Place the baking sheet inside a cold oven, then, turn the heat to 400 degrees F.

Step 3: Bake the bacon for about 15 to 25 minutes or until the bacon is on your desired level of crispiness. Check the bacon after 15 minutes as thin slices of bacon cook quickly.

Step 4: Once baked, remove from the oven and transfer the cooked bacon to a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil. Great for breakfast with some eggs and mashed potatoes. Enjoy!
