How to Make Bacon in the Oven

Bacon makes everything better, right?! Well, sure maybe – everything but the MESS it can create!  I really hate a greasy mess, plus I do not want to have to babysit a pan when I need to be tending to other parts of the meal.  So that is why I love this method of cooking bacon.  Even the clean up is minimal!! (You will learn that I despise dirty dishes!! For the first time in my adult life at almost 30, I have a dishwasher! I am happy about that!)

Okay, so what is this easy method of cooking bacon?  In the oven of course! 😉

Be sure to preheat your oven to 375 degrees.  Then line a shallow pan or cookie sheet with foil and make sure it is covered all over too!  Even if it gets on the pan, at least it should be very little grease and/or clean up.  Place the raw bacon slices on a rack* in the shallow pan and cook until lightly browned.

*What kind of rack works best?  Well, in my opinion and experience, I like the cooling racks for cookies.  Mine seem to fit just right on my cookie sheets.  There’s no wrong or right – just a method I like to pass along.

Be very careful when removing the pan from the oven.  You will have grease build up and don’t want to burn yourself or anyone else around you.  I make my kids get out of the kitchen.  You know how kiddos think they have to be under foot all the time!!

Then I just lay it on a plate lined with paper towels or napkins to soak up any excess grease as it cools.

Enjoy!!! 🙂
