Cooking Bacon In The Oven: How-To

Bacon is delicious and a favorite breakfast treat, but it’s a bit time consuming if you’re making it for a crowd (big family meals) and it’s an item that needs to be babysat if prepared in a frying pan or electric griddle (and the grease splatters, oh my!).

If you haven’t tried making it in the oven, give it a shot and see what you think…I say it’s darn near perfect. This prepares big batches quickly, evenly and it’s less messy too. Here’s how to do it…


1 large shallow pan or baking sheet with sides
aluminum foil
wire rack (optional)


Easy Cleanup: Either pour off grease in a container to use for later and toss aluminum foil or allow the grease to get cold then remove solidified fat by lifting foil out of pan and throwing in the garbage.

Update: Here’s a flavor twist you might be interested in…Maple Pepper! Here’s how:
