How to Bake Your Bacon


Beautifully straight slices of crispy baked bacon.

Ladies and gentlemen, are you frustrated by unevenly cooked bacon?  Are you embarrassed by bacon curled up into unseemly snarls?  Are you tired of skidding around on a skating rink of grease in front of your stove as you suffer the splattering hot grease that comes out of the frying pan?

Well, you don’t have to suffer anymore. Simply bake your bacon. Here’s how.

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Place a cooling rack (the kind you cool cookies on) into a rimmed baking sheet. Lay your strips of uncooked bacon in straight rows, just touching, not overlapping, on the rack. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until it is as crispy as you like it, and drain on paper towels.

That’s it!
