Cook a whole package of bacon perfectly in 20 minutes with no messy cleanup. Can you ever really have enough bacon? With this recipe you can get close.
Why fry up four pieces of bacon only to be left with a frying pan full off hot grease that you have to let cool, scrape out and throw away? If you’re good you scrape it into a container to put in the fridge. Personally, I can’t keep up with my bacon fat enough though and only save fat from maybe one out of five batches of bacon I cook.
By simply lining a baking sheet with foil and cooking the bacon in the oven, you can have a whole passel of bacon, cooked evenly and ready at the same time. After breakfast when the baking pan is cool, just wad up the foil and throw away. Bacon without a greasy fry pan to clean up? And stove. And counter. That’s my kind of cooking!
- 1 package bacon
- Preheat oven to 425°. Line rimmed baking sheet with foil so that the bottom and up the sides are covered.
- Lay bacon out on baking sheet in a single layer. Keep pieces from overlapping or they will stick together.
- Put baking sheet in oven. Check at 15 minutes to make sure it’s cooking evenly. Rotate pan if needed. Cook 5 more minutes for crispy bacon.
- Immediately remove bacon to paper towel lined plate.
