Baked Bacon

I don’t know about you, but I really really SUCK at cooking bacon.  It takes forever and inevitably I turn away for JUST TWO MINUTES and turn back to find it totally charred.  My mom always did it in the microwave, but I never liked it as well that way.   Then I discovered that you can bake it in the oven.  With a timer.   I can lay out multiple strips and cook a whole batch at once (more than will fit in a pan on the stove) and I don’t have to tend or flip it?  Yeah baby!


  • Bacon


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Layer cooling racks over a baking tray.
  3. Lay the bacon on the racks.
  4. Bake 15-20 minutes (depending on thickness–I use thick cut bacon).
  5. Blot on paper towels.
