  • ½ pound sliced bacon


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Place a wire cooling rack inside of a rimmed baking sheet.
  • Lay the bacon in a single layer on the wire rack; the pieces can touch but they shouldn't overlap.
  • Bake for 12 to 20 minutes, depending on thickness and desired crispness. Transfer the cooked bacon to a paper towel lined plate or surface to soak up excess oil and cool slightly.
