I love bacon. I mean, I really love bacon. However, I am NOT fond of the mess it makes, when I make it on the stove top. To remedy that problem, why not make it in the oven??? It’s super simple, and clean up is a breeze! Here is how to make perfect bacon in the oven:
Line a rimmed cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Place your bacon side by side on the cookie sheet. Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and flip each piece over. Bake for an additional 5-10 minutes. The amount of time on the second side will depend on two things: 1) How crispy you like your bacon and 2) How thick your bacon is. I usually do 10 minutes on one side, and 6-7 minutes on the second side, for bacon that is perfectly crispy, but not burnt.
Lastly, remove your bacon from the oven, and place slices on a paper towel to drain. For clean-up, let your cookie sheets cool, then remove foil. Occasionally, some of the grease may seep through on the cookie sheet, but most times, the pan stays clean!
