Ok, so everyone else in the world may know and do this but I just heard about it and tried it and think it is about the GREATEST thing since well, you know…
I’ve made bacon several times this past week for recipes and tried to bake it instead of the nasty, painful, grease flyin’ method of the past!
Let me say…it was AWESOME!
Line a baking sheet that has sides with foil.
Lay out the bacon and place in oven on center rack. (Don’t preheat)
Turn oven to 400 degrees and bake for 17 to 20 minutes depending on how crispy you like your bacon.
Remove from oven and lay on paper towels to soak up some of the grease (this is just optional…if you like it greasy, don’t do this step)
Wait for the grease on your foil to cool a bit and then just throw it away…super easy clean up.
Then enjoy your bacon without the mess, splatters, and burns!
(If you’re wondering if it splattered all over the place in my oven…it didn’t.
I just cleaned my oven so I was a bit nervous about this…not a problem though.)
