Bacon in the oven

Bacon=Meat Candy. Period.

I love bacon, especially the smell permeating the house..it just wakes everyone up in a good mood.

What I don't love is all the grease, splatters, taking up one burner, and having to pay constant attention. How can I make a big breakfast with 2 or 3 other items while babysitting bacon?
Not to mention, I hate regulating the temperature in the pan so that all the bacon stays flat and doesn't crinkle up.
I only have one pan that fits the bacon press...so that is not always an option.

Oven bacon to the rescue!

Take a big cookie sheet and add oven safe cooling racks (to keep the bacon out of the grease). Lay your bacon out in strips on the racks.

Take entire pan and put it in a cold oven. Set oven to heat to 400 degrees.
Depending on the length of time your oven takes to preheat, by the time mine was preheated, it was cooked perfectly crispy!



I will be doing this again...often.
I think next time I will line the bottom of the pan with tin foil. Let the grease harden and just fold up and throw away.
