Oven Fried Bacon


My family loves bacon, I hate cooking it. I don’t have a griddle and trying to cook enough in a skillet takes far too long. Plus the grease is just horrible to deal with. Baking it in the oven skips that whole process.

Using a cookie sheet, place a cooling rack on top. As long as it is metal and not plastic, it will be fine. Lay the bacon so that each slice touches the one next to it. The grease will drip down and the bacon will cook evenly. You can also add flavor if you like such as maple syrup or black pepper.

Place the pan into a 350 degree oven. How long it takes to cook will depend on how crispy you like your bacon and how thick it is. If one person likes theirs extra crispy you can have their bacon on a separate pan. Plan on at least 20 minutes for each batch of bacon.

The rendered fat can be poured into a jar and stored in the fridge for later use.

I have been married for 20 years and have 3 children. My oldest is 20 and currently in the National Guard. My daughters are 15 and 11 and involved in everything. I believe life is difficult enough, that we can find ways to make the everyday just a little easier and perhaps even more simple. I love to cook, shop and make things with the kids.
