What’s My Favorite Way To Cook Bacon? In The Oven!

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). It’s also 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 bacon in the oven, give it a shot and see what you think…I say it’s darn near perfect.

Keep it in the oven until it’s as crispy or as chewy as you like…this accommodates all bacon aficionado preferences! This method also prepares big batches quickly, evenly and bonus! it’s a lot less messy too.

Here’s how it’s done…


1 large shallow pan or baking sheet with sides
aluminum foil (parchment paper works well too)
wire rack (optional)


Easy Cleanup: Either pour off fat 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/paper out of pan and throwing in the garbage.

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

Also: Twisted Spirals [2]: This promises to be delicious, twist the strips before heating (thicker cuts will need wooden skewers to hold the shape).
