Cook Bacon in the Oven
Save time! Save the hassle of cleaning up - washing a skillet full of grease, getting popped by the grease while the bacon is cooking...
You, too, can cook bacon in the oven. I first heard about this on Our Best Bites and I have done this multiple times now, with great results.
Turn your oven to 400 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. It doesn't need to be nonstick. Lay out bacon slices in a single layer. You don't need to wait for your oven to preheat. Place pan in the oven for about 12-15 minutes, and then start watching it until it's at the crispiness that you like.
You can save the drippings or wrap them up and toss them!
I LOVE this way because it doesn't take up an extra stove eye and it is SO easy to clean up. The picture above is turkey bacon but I've done regular bacon as well. They both turn out perfectly.
